"Stocked" Art Historian Talk: Full House: Pop Art, Domesticity, and Consumer Culture

Event Date:Thursday, January 31, 2013
Event Time:6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Location: 210 McKnight West, School of Art and Design

Join Dr. Christin J. Mamiya for an illustrated talk, "Full House: Pop Art, Domesticity, and Consumer Culture" about the consumer culture of the 1960s and how pop art developed. What were the factors -- economic, political and social -- that led to the postwar consumer culture that dominates our lives even today? And how did pop art interpret issues that faced consumers of the 1960s? The discussion will focus on the home -- a primary arena for consumer activity -- and the role of women as consumers.

Dr. Christin J. Mamiya is associate dean of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and professor of art history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her scholarship focuses on contemporary American art; she also co-authored the go-to art history textbook, Gardner's "Art Through the Ages," and authored "Pop Art and Consumer Culture: American Grocery Store."
