From Warhol to Banksy
A survey of 20th and 21st Pop artists and their contribution to Modern and Contemporary Art
Tuesdays, Feb 5th to Feb 26th at 1 pm - Four weeks
Andy Warhol once said
“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” a prediction that feels even more true with each year passing. How he embraced new technology; how his manipulation of existing images makes him the father of the meme; how his recording and enshrining of day-to-day ephemera was an embryonic Instagram. All Make him the iconic trailblazer artist that he was.
Banksy is the anonymous England-based street artist, vandal, political activist, and film director.
On the surface these two artists couldn’t be further apart, but are they?
We will survey the history of Pop Art and its most famous practitioners from its early beginnings in New York in the fifties to our days and its far-reaching influence on the works of graffiti artists like Banksy and contemporary pop artists.
We will be exploring the importance of this movement and its continuous thread to the art of our time.
You will learn about Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Jones, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Jean Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Banksy and more
Impressionism and the City
Tuesdays, March 5th to April 2nd at 1 pm- Five weeks
The Impressionist artists were not only looking to nature as a source of inspiration for their art. Even though as a group they were mostly known for their landscape paintings, beautiful dappled light and leisure a great number of their paintings are grittier and focus on the city in particularly Paris and its rapid transformation and growth into a busy industrial thriving hub. Part of their modernity was their ability to capture this new excitement and the changing realities of city dwelling.
In winter 2019 the AGO will stage an exciting new exhibition called: ''IMPRESSIONISM IN THE AGE OF INDUSTRY: MONET, PISSARRO AND MORE” will explore how the Impressionist artists reflected on their changing city.
Works will be drawn from the AGO collection and from around the world and will illustrate how Fascinated by the rapid pace of change, the Impressionists captured on canvas the workers, machines and factories that were forever altering their city.
