James Rosenquist: Painting as Immersion

Premier in Museum Ludwig! For the first time ever, the amazing large scale works of James Rosenquist (1933–2017) will be displayed in this superlative retrospective. This famous Pop Artist is known for his colorful, consumer imagery and billboard-size meter long panels. The show highlights not only the Rosenquist’s artwork but presents documents and other sources that sparked his interest and reveal the cultural, social and political dimensions of the 60s and 70s.

Pop Art takes on more meaning. It can be understood not only in its spectacular zaniness but also expressing a political message.
