Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany
In a major exhibition by James Rosenquist (1933–2017), for the first time ever the Museum Ludwig will present works by this renowned representative of American Pop Art in the context of their cultural, social, and political dimensions. Along with archive materials and documents designated by the artist as source materials, some of which have not previously been exhibited, the show will reveal a historical cosmos. After all, James Rosenquist’s compositions are to a large extent the result of his marked interest in the political events of his time.
Exhibition period: November 18, 2017 – March 4, 2018
