Pop Goes The Cultural Revolution

The Palm Springs Art Museum also has a show dedicated to Pop Art humour that's more interesting than amusing. Red Groom's 1997 3-D lithograph of Picasso was a case in point.

So was the Wayne Thiebaud clown print from 1979.

The best piece of humour was Steven Wibben posing in my Nixon in China T-shirt between the Warhol Mao prints. This was appropriation squared.
