The Domestic Sphere Goes Pop
Curatorial Fellowship

April 4 - May 6, 2012
Rosenquist

The Domestic Sphere Goes Pop, a new exhibition at the University Museum of Contemporary Art, investigates what happens to unremarkable objects when they are elevated to the status of art. The exhibition will open on Wednesday, April 4 and be on view through May 13. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, April 4 from 5-7 p.m. and will include a gallery talk by Rebecca Bernard and Kristen Rudy, co-curators and candidates for Master’s of Art in Art History, UMass Amherst.

The Domestic Sphere Goes Pop examines works on paper from the 1960s and 1970s. It focuses particularly on the ways artists manipulate color, form, scale, context, and technique to defamiliarize the everyday. Artists in this exhibition include : James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol, and Eduardo Paolozzi. The works of art in this exhibition have been drawn from the strong permanent collection of the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
The Domestic Sphere Goes Pop is co-curated by Rebecca Bernard and Kristen Rudy, Masters in Art History candidates, 2012. This exhibition is presented as the culmination of their Curatorial Fellowship.
