James Rosenquist: Visualizing the Sixties

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac / London / Art

As curator Sarah C. Bancroft has written of the artist James Rosenquist, “From age twenty-seven to thirty-seven, he had grown from a young buck Pop artist who ruffled the artistic establishment to an esteemed insider.” She’s referring to the 1960s, when Rosenquist went from designing commercial billboards and theater marquees to becoming a major figure in the fine arts landscape, an artist who played with the restrictions of perception and the medium of painting itself. Here is the first U.K. exhibition in 30 years to focus on Rosenquist in that pivotal decade—the 60s. —E.C.
