An expansive exhibition of artworks by the late American Pop artist James Rosenquist, entitled “Painting as Immersion,” will be on display at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum in Denmark. More than fifty pieces will be presented, including never-before-shown collages and archival works from the late-’50s to ’60s that exemplify the artist’s signature advertising aesthetic and monumental formats. This will be the largest Rosenquist exhibition in Europe to date.
James Rosenquist was a billboard painter-turned artist who was instrumental in establishing the Pop art movement alongside fellow icons Andy Warhol and Roy-Lichtenstein. Rosenquist’s massive surrealist works are known for collaging contrasting subject matters into fragmented images that echoed advertising visuals and tapped into the relationship between science and aesthetics. His commercial-tinged artworks spoke on America’s booming consumer culture during the ’60s and its connected economic, political and social issues.
