The Most Famous Pop Artist You Dont Know

The Most Famous Pop Artist You Dont Know
NY Times features Tom Wesselmann and our Seascapes #22 banner from the Denver Art Museum's retrospective of his work. Fascinating article on likely the reason why he was never recognized among his contemporaries as a leader in Pop Art.

We could settle right into this comfy, lofted reading room!

Walter Benjamin and Andy Warhol

Walter Benjamin and Andy Warhol
I've just read the influential 1936 essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction by Walter Benjamin. He delves into the concept of authenticity in art in an age of infinite reproducibility.

The Evolution of De-evolution

The Evolution of De-evolution
Myopia continues for another month. The Mark Mothersbaugh exhibit at MCA-Denver. Through April 12. Watch this video on how Mothersbaugh's vision came to be, so to speak. Next stop: Minneapolis Institute of Arts, June 18 - Sept 6, 2015. Future dates in Austin, Cincinnati, Santa Monica, and New York. Devo's amazing "Whip It" was perfect video fodder for 80s MTV.

The Shock of the New -- 102 Years Ago

The Armory Show. Feb 17-March 15, 1913. New York City. They say great art anticipates. On the eve of a great historic spasm, the art world experienced an earth-shaking moment of its own. It was the first large exhibit of modern art in America.

Here at BetterWall we are re-watching "The Shock of the New", the classic documentary about the development of modern art. It premiered on British TVs in 1980 and came over the pond in 1981, on PBS of course -- the U.S. home of Benny Hill.

Bauhauser Bayer and Raquel Welch

Bauhauser Bayer and Raquel Welch
I once thought it a monumental eyesore. If you have ever driven through Denver on I-25, by the Broadway exit, you may have noticed a giant yellow wall of concrete, Jenga-like blocks stacked and fanned out on top of each other. For years I eyed this sculpture with suspicion, frankly I didn't like it.

Low-Brow and "Big Eyes"

Low-Brow and "Big Eyes"
Amy Adams wins Golden Globe for title role in Margaret Keane film. She's also nominated for a leading actress BAFTA trophy, coming up on Feb. 8. Here's hoping for a fellow Coloradan! An enduring memory growing up in the suburbs in the 60s and 70s were the freaky big eyes staring at me from the walls of friends' homes.
