Art History Presentations

New Winter 2017 Series with Sandra Seekins, MA, art historian from Capilano University.

Roy Leichenstein

Pop Art: Consumerism and Mass Culture
After the anti-Communist hysteria of the fifties, and the challenging abstract art of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, the general public ate up the colourful and recognizable imagery of Pop art.  The sixties saw the rise of advertising budgets and mass production, and Pop artists often represented the most familiar brand names as well as using techniques from the graphic arts.  We will look at the prevalent themes in Pop art and how the artists both celebrated and critiqued mass culture.

Monday, February 20*, 7-9 p.m.    $15    Register at 604-925-7270 (#29218) or online.

*Note this presentation was re-scheduled from Feb 6.

Chile

March 1: Impressions of Chile, travelling from the driest to the wettest point on earth
(course #31252). Register online.

A long, narrow sliver of land, clinging to the edge of a continent, Chile has often drawn attention to itself for its wholly implausible shape. The Andes, the great mountain range that forms its eastern border, are a formidable barrier of rock and ice that cuts the country off from Argentina and Bolivia.

Chile is a country distinct from the rest of South America and one that defies many people’s expectations of an Andean country. It is developed and relatively affluent. A country of geographical extremes, Chile’s diversity is reflected both in its people, from the alpaca herders of the Altiplano and the gauchos of Patagonia to the businessmen of Santiago.
