High and Low: Modern Art and Popular Culture



This exhibition sought to examine modern art and it’s inherent relation to popular culture, focusing on how Parisian art that predated World War I has permeated Western culture as reflected by more recent works. The dialogue between “high art” of the museum and commercial culture of the West was picked apart here, with sculptures and paintings being set into four categories: advertising, caricature, comics, and graffiti. The exhibit featured over 250 works by over 50 artists. Some major artists featured in the exhibit included Jules Chéret, Marcel Duchamp, Georges Braque, Robert Delauney, Max Ernst, Juan Gris, Meret Oppenheim, Man Ray, Pablo Picasso, Roy Lictenstein, Jasper Johns, and Lyonel Feininger.
