Kitsch Me Like You Mean It!

Exhibition Run: February 29 - April 26, 2020 
Work Pick Up Deadline: May 2, 2020

Although Jeff Koons, the King of Kitsch himself, prefers the term banal, “kitsch” has made its home in the art world the same way that pop art has. We hear people make mention of what is and isn’t art all the time but it’s rare that we ever hear “why isn’t it art?” This exhibition is all about looking at art, not through the critical eye of an artist but through the eyes of a viewer who embraces the oddity, humor, and “banal” of kitsch and the irony that surrounds it. After all, good jokes incorporate irony and, as Elizabeth Taylor once said “If you can’t laugh at yourself, you’re cooked!”

Take a look at this exhibition online below.
