This book offers the first in-depth analysis of the relationship between art and design, which led to the creation of 'pop'. Challenging accepted boundaries and definitions, the authors seek out various commonalities and points of connection between these two exciting areas. Confronting the all-pervasive 'high art / low culture' divide, Pop Art and Design brings a fresh understanding of visual culture during the vibrant 1950s and 60s. This was an era when commercial art became graphic design, illustration was superseded by photography and high fashion became street fashion, all against the backdrop of a rapidly-evolving economic and political landscape, a glamorous youth scene and an effervescent popular culture. The book's central argument is that pop art relied on and drew inspiration from pop design, and vice versa. Massey and Seago assert that this relationship was articulated through the artwork, design, publications and exhibitions of a network of key practitioners. Pop Art and Design provides a case study in the broader inter-relationship between art and design, and constitutes the first interdisciplinary publication on the subject.

Pop Art by the BBC's Alastair Sooke - an essential but snappy new guide to our favourite art movement Pop Art is the most important 20th-century art movement. It brought Modernism to the masses, making art sexy and fun with coke cans and comics. Today, in our age of selfies and social networking, we are still living in a world defined by Pop. Full of brand new interviews and research, Sooke describes the great works by Warhol, Lichtenstein and other key figures, but also re-examines the movement for the 21st century and asks if it is still art? He reveals a global story, tracing Pop's surprising origins in 19th-century Paris to uncovering the forgotten female artists of the 1960s.

Originating n England in the mid 1950s, Pop Art developed its full potential in the USA in the 1960s. It substitutes the everyday for the splendid : mass-produced articles are assigned the same importance as one-offs ; the difference between high culture and popular culture is swept away. Media and advertising are among the preferred contents of Pop Art, which celebrates the consumer society in its own witty fashion. The enthusiasm generated by Pop Art since the first works were exhibited has never died down - it is greater today than ever before.

"Kostelanetz excels, for instance, at astutely cynical debunkings of many of the 'radical chic' culture heroes of the 60s. . . . He can be scathingly funny as well deflating both the over-rated trendy avant-gardists and the 'New York Intellectual' elders who tyrannized the time. . . . As a meticulously reconstructed record of literary coming of age in a particularly propitious cultural moment, 'One Million Words' has carved out a unique place in the annals of literary autobiography."Library

The Art of Douglas Bourgeois

This first monograph on Douglas Bourgeois publishes the fascinating work of a figurative artist whose meticulously detailed paintings and sculptural assemblages present icons of popular culture as well as everyday people from Louisiana's diverse populations. With magical realist imagery, his work combines religious figures, pop-culture artifacts, environmental concerns, social issues, and the iconic stars of Hollywood's golden age and contemporary rock 'n' roll. Bourgeois fuses private fantasy with a kind of social document, exploring everything from racial tensions to violence, both domestic and public. The artist, like the figures he depicts, searches for magic or spiritual qualities in everyday things. Ultimately he and his art seek redemption. This color-filled volume includes three essays and color reproductions of key works dating from 1975 to 2001. It is published in conjunction with a traveling retrospective exhibition organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans. Its reference value is enhanced by the inclusion of a chronology, bibliography, lists of exhibitions and collections, and index.
