Today opens the Pop Life : Art in a Material World Exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. As mentioned in a previous post, here is my second FAKE exhibition poster. It is inspired by the style of pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. The subject of this piece is Jeff Koons silver rabbit, one of the main attraction of this exhibit. It was done entirely with photoshop.
From June 11th to September 19th 2010, the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) in Ottawa is hosting the Pop Life : Art in a Material World Exhibition. It explores the complex relationship between contemporary art, marketing and the mass media. Beginning with the late work of American Pop artist Andy Warhol (1928-1987), the exhibition proposes a re-reading of his legacy and explores how some of today’s high-profile media-savvy artists have followed his lead, embracing celebrity and commerce as the foundation of their work.
Following this theme, I designed a fake exhibition poster. I used the architecture of the NGC glass tower as an inspiration for this piece. I’m working on a second poster that hopefully will be completed before the exhibition begins. Stay tuned.
