About From Warhol to Banksy: Pop Art - known for its commentary on consumerism, social consciousness, and, more recently, activism - is not just a phenomenon of the 1960s. The evolution of Pop Art, from Andy Warhol’s infamous Marilyn Monroe screen prints to Banksy’s guerilla street art, has completely blurred the lines between high and low art. Through a selection of prints, paintings, sculpture, and ephemera, visitors will see first-hand how Pop Art continues to critique our world and challenges us to think about the issues that persist in our everyday life.
From Warhol to Banksy is organized and circulated by the Kelowna Art Gallery. Curated by Christine May. Courtesy of the Paul and Tracy Mitchell Collection.
