This catalog accompanies an exhibition of the same name that will travel from Los Angeles to Chicago to New York in 1993. Commonly, pop art is thought of as mechanically produced and reproduced art. Though it may be loaded with color and crash/bang action images, it expresses cool detachment through the exclusion of brush strokes and the nearly industrial production.
