Pop for the People: Roy Lichtenstein in L.A. explores how the artist, a vanguard of the Pop Art movement buoyed by a renaissance in printmaking, made fine art accessible to the American public in ways that had not been achieved before. The exhibition features prints from Lichtenstein’s Bull Profile and Surrealist series, as well as the iconic Sunriseand Shipboard Girl. Additional works on display range from political subject matter to paper plates, clothing, and shopping bags.
The exhibition also highlights Lichtenstein’s longtime collaboration with Stanley Grinstein and Sidney Felsen, cofounders of the prominent Los Angeles artists’ workshop Gemini G.E.L. Their groundbreaking printing house played a formative role in shaping the Los Angeles art scene and helped transform the city into a global center for printmaking and Pop Art.
