Scope and Contents

This exhibition, curated by Wendy Weitman, consists of prints and multiples from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Weitman contributes an essay. "Printmaking in the Pop Era: The Medium amd the Message." The catalogue is divided into the following sections: Proto-Pop; Mass Media; Consumer Culture; Politics; Erotica. It contains a chronology from the years 1960 to 1970 of Pop Printmaking, Pop Art, and Politics/Popular Culture. There are extensive notes on the artists, art works and publishers as well as a selected bibliography. The relevance of Pop Art is examined by Colin Self who writes, " Pop Art was the first art movement for goodness knows how long to accept and reflect the world in which it lives...In other words, there is a conspicuous absence of 20th century iconogrpahy in 20th century art - until Pop Art. Before POP all ART hid behind being 'ARTY.' Art had reached such a state of insincerity and pretentiousness, POP was a real revelation." Illustrated and contained in the Sackner Archive are "Boom-Boom" by Arman, "Moonships Empire News" by Eduardo Paolozzi, "Piccadillies" by Dieter Roth, "New York International" by Oyvind Fahlstrom." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
