Description: Pop Art whether American, British, or European, had - and has as its underlying and unifying agenda - a commentary or critique concerning the impact of "popular" culture (film, television, advertising, music, fashion, etc.) on contemporary society, especially in creating a new synthesis of "popular" and "high" culture in the visual arts. This, in part, was a reaction against the lofty, idealistic aspirations of post-war abstraction. This course will examine the philosophical and aesthetic origins and development of what came to be known as Pop Art.
