PETITE POP!  Arts Project Australia artists celebrate popular culture

Artists have a long history of looking to popular culture for inspiration as they draw on attitudes, ideas, images and other phenomena presented in mainstream mass media. From Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein to Claus Oldenburg and Jean Dubuffet — popular culture themes, aesthetics and sensibilities inform what artists create and subsequently shape the way we reflect on our culture, mirroring our values and culture back to us.

PETITE POP! is a distilled group exhibition that provides a snapshot of the colourful and astute work of Arts Project Australia artists who celebrate popular culture in a myriad of ways. The collection highlights artists whose artwork embodies a pop aesthetic and uses aspects of popular culture to inform their work and playfully pay homage to their favourite artists and popular culture images presented through digital media.

 

PETITE POP! Features work by APA artists; Peter Ben, Emily Dober, Bronwyn Hack, Bobby Kyriakopoulos, Adrian Lazzaro, Michael Licenblat, Julian Martin, Lisa Reid and Anthony Romagnano.


Earlier extensive iterations of PETITE POP! were exhibited in Melbourne at Arts Project Australia as well as in POP! at Wangaratta Art Gallery, which also included the work of invited Victorian artists including Jon Campbell, Paul Yore, Peter Atkins and Georgina Cue.
