Pop Surrealism: The Rise of
Friday, February 24, 7:00pm
Gage Studio, third floor
Join Kirsten Anderson for a peek into the history, development and current state of the Pop Surrealism/Lowbrow art movement that started in the 60s in Southern California and is now a worldwide phenomena. The movement is now getting grudging, if bewildered, respect from the ?High Art World,? and while it remains slightly vilified, is voraciously collected by forward-thinking collectors. Anderson will also answer Pop Surrealism questions from the audience.
Kirsten Anderson is the owner of the internationally known Roq La Rue Gallery, and is the editor of the book ?Pop Surrealism ? The Rise Of Underground Art.? She has also curated a museum show in Colorado based upon the book, and was a guest lecturer at the 2005 Mark Ryden ?Wondertoonel? exhibition at the Frye Art Museum.
