Press Release

Marc Jancou Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of New Pop: Illustrated Americana, a group exhibition featuring work by Carter, Larry Johnson, Sherrie Levine, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Prince, Jim Shaw, and Andy Warhol.  The exhibition will be on view February 15 – March 22, 2014.

 

New Pop: Illustrated Americana examines the ways in which illustrated media has permeated contemporary art.  Incorporating bourgeois interiors, comic book superheroes, characters from children’s cartoons, and historical sports figures, among other sources, the artists included in the exhibition mine decades of Americana for inspiration with profoundly varied effect.  The result is a welcome ride through the history of 20th Century American popular culture.

 

New Pop: Illustrated Americana explores the intersection of illustration, Pop art, and appropriation.  The artworks included in the exhibition have a playful, latent humor, while raising important questions on the role of the artist and the function of artwork in vernacular visual culture.
