Michael Speaker’s Sculpture featured in “Pop! 50 Years of Art & Popular Culture

Michael Speaker’s Sculpture featured in “Pop! 50 Years of Art & Popular Culture

Michael Speaker’s sculpture, “Team Xerox” mixed woods, 52inches high, 1989, is included in “Pop! 50 Years of Art & Popular Culture from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.

The unique influence of Pop art will be explored in Pop! 50 Years of Art & Popular Culture from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation at Pepperdine University’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art beginning Tuesday, August 28, until Sunday, December 2. A special opening reception will be held on Sunday, September 9, from 2 to 4 PM.

Featuring vintage examples of historic Pop art, combined with work by younger artists, this exhibition features more than 50 pieces, and looks at the varied ways contemporary art continues to reflect mass media and daily life.
Since Pop art appeared in the early 1960s, artists have drawn inspiration from popular culture. Over time, Pop has proven to be a remarkably resilient and flexible style, renewing itself with each generation of young artists who look at the world around them with an alert and lively eye. The artists in this exhibition draw inspiration from a wide range of daily experiences, from comic books to television, from kitchen toasters to manhole covers. Including work by the pioneers of the movement as well as by newer talents, this exhibition reveals that the Pop spirit is ever renewed in the eye of the beholder.

Congratulations Michael.
