Observingarts: Good Morning America at Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo. Starting 16. October.
Untitled (Cowboy), 1997
126,4 x 193 cm
The exhibition Good Morning America casts light on how, in the late 1970s and the 1980s, an important group of American artists invented a new form of artistic language, often referred to as ‘Appropriation art’, by borrowing existing photographs, objects, aesthetics, ideas and clichés found in American art and consumer culture.
The exhibition includes works by Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Charles Ray. Each has created a very personal form of artistic expression to tell a story of American society at the time. More at Astrup Fearnley Museum
