American Ambassador to Serbia H.E. Kyle Scott opened an exhibition entitled “American Pop Art” at Belgrade’s Heritage House (46 Knez Mihailova Street) on 12th January.
The exhibition encompasses more than 110 original graphic art works from the iconic American pop art that emerged in the 1960s all the way to the first decade of the 21st century. The selection of works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, John Chamberlain and Tom Wesselmann will be exhibited until 12th March.
Speaking at the opening event, Ambassador Scott reminded those in attendance that the 1950s and ‘60s represented a period of major change for America, with a technological, demographic and industrial boom.
“These artists, whose works we see exhibited, are a product of consumerism, just as I am a product of the baby boom,” said the ambassador.
The “American Pop Art” exhibition is composed of works owned by the renowned Visconti Fine Art Gallery.
