High & Low – Modern Art and Popular Culture

Catalogue from an exhibition curated by Kirk Varnedoe and Adam Copnik, Museum of Modern Art New York, 1990. 460 pages and more than 600 illustrations.

“Since its beginnings in the late nineteenth century, modern art has had an extraordinary openness to popular culture – to styles and imagery derived, for example, from newspapers, advertisements, cartoons, and graffiti. This striking and richly illustrated volume is the first encompassing history of that century-long dialogue between ‘high’ and ‘low.’ In it, [the authors] trace the key exchanges through which artists have expanded the languages of art by taking up styles and forms found outside the usual precincts of the museum; they show how those exchanges have constantly redefined for us the relationship between the private imagination and the shared energies of public communication.”
