Includes a statement by each artist. Includes both paintings and sculpture. Modern art has tried to cope with the modernism of the modern world and modernization in general and what these imply as to utopian possibility (anti-utopian hopes as well!) and mirror images of grinning self-conscious consumptions and marvelous divertissements. In contrast to the Pop Art elimination of content from their creations, the artists selected here use the pop art approach, but with emotionally and conceptually charged outcomes.  Included works by Richard Artschwager, Andy Warhol, Leon Golub, Jerry Kearns, Irving Petlin, Llyn Foulkes, and Barbara Kruger.
