Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) is recognized as a leading figure in the Pop Art movement which came to prominence in the 1960s. Within an intentionally limited scope of subject matter, Wesselmann crafted an innovative body of work that evolved constantly. This exhibition presents Wesselmann’s work at the intersection of the classical western culture that has shaped art history for centuries and the systematic and universal commodification of all things and values that defines our world today.
