Members’ Preview: Pop Art


Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Cans II, 1969 Screenprint on paper Edition 17 of 250 35 x 23 in


The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invites all MCA Members to a special preview of two exhibitions: Pop Art Design and The Street, the Store, and the Silver Screen: Pop Art from the MCA Collection.

The spirit of pop not only manifested itself in Andy Warhol's paintings of Marilyn Monroe and Campbell's soup cans, it also influenced the look of chairs, sofas, lamps, and even architecture during the culturally ebullient 1960s and 1970s. Pop Art Design, an exhibition organized by the Vitra Design Museum, one of the preeminent furniture and design museums in the world, pairs iconic design objects with artworks from this celebrated era to show the cross-pollination between these creative worlds. Presented alongside The Street, the Store, and the Silver Screen, a companion exhibition of classic pop works from the MCA collection, this exhibition offers a fresh perspective on this prevailing period of cultural production.
