About Corita Kent: Power Up
Advertising slogans collide with religious texts in Corita Kent’s bright, bold and at times controversial screen prints. This vital voice of 1960s American pop art brings the sublime to bear on the everyday, using typography and graphic design to investigate modern life and challenge its afflictions – poverty, racism, and war.
Public protest and spiritual reflection found a shared language in Kent’s pioneering approach to art and education in Hollywood in the 1960s. The exhibition will offer a bold new perspective on a pivotal period in American art.
