18 September - 7 November
This Mel Ramos exhibition has been made possible by the most generous donation of Ernst Hilger, gallerist in Vienna. It includes 30 recent editions of lithographs and high quality silkscreens , created by the American artist between 1996 and 2009. Ramos is one of the pioneers of the West Coast Pop Art movement.
He developed a specific kind of pop art iconography which entails an ironic reference to the image of women projected by the mass media and the advertisements of the consumer‘s society. Thirteen works from the donated collection are exhibited.
Curated by Danielle Kvaran.
