EXPOSED! - Revealing Sources in Contemporary Art

Exposed! — Revealing Sources in Contemporary Art at the Delaware Art Museum

August 15, 2009 – October 4, 2009

Since the 1960s a wide range of artists—including Andy Warhol, Richard Prince, and Ellen Gallagher—have made pictures that reference specific works of art and popular culture. Displaying these paintings, prints, and photographs alongside images of their sources, Exposed! explores artistic strategies of quotation and appropriation. The featured works present various relationships to their sources, from respectful homage to cultural critique. The exhibition includes works of art by Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, Robert Colescott, Grace Hartigan, Ellen Gallagher, and Glenn Ligon, among others. Some pieces are from the Delaware Art Museum’s collection, and some are on loan from private collections.

Exhibition curator Heather Campbell Coyle will lead a tour of the show and discuss the works as well as the sources from which the artists appropriated.
