¡Orale! Kings and Queens of Cool, a most exciting exhibition of Lowbrow Art at the Harwood Museum in Taos, NM, was selected as one of the TOP 20 exhibitions of 2014 by Art Business News. The brainchild of Jina Brenneman, Curator of Exhibitions, ¡Orale! is a four-part exhibition focusing on the Post-Pop or Lowbrow art movement that grew out of West Coast surfer, street and car cultures.
“The Lowbrow Insurgence: The Rise of Post-Pop Art,”curated by Billy Shire and Matthew Kennedy, features FSU Art Professor Carrie Ann Baade’s painting, “Queen Bitch.” Among the many artists included in this exhibit are works by Robert Williams, Mark Rydern, and H.R. Giger, In a statement from co-curator, Matthew Kennedy:
“We were asked to select pieces from the gallery and from our own personal collections that we felt represent the high water mark in the movement that started as Low Brow, evolved into Pop Surrealism, and which we now call Post Pop. This is an honor we all share.”
Other shows on the list included David Hockney at Pace, Jeff Koons at the Whitney, Frida Kahlo at MOCA Chicago, and Cézanne at the High Museum, Atlanta.
