The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, London, are co-organizing a major retrospective of foremost Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. James Rondeau, Frances and Thomas Dittmer Curator and Chair, Department of Contemporary Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and Sheena Wagstaff, Chief Curator, Tate Modern will co-curate the exhibition—the first retrospective since 1993. Opening in Chicago in May 2012, the exhibition will travel to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. and culminate at Tate Modern, expected to close in London in May 2013. A major catalogue, published by The Art Institute of Chicago and distributed by Yale University Press, will include essays by Rondeau, Wagstaff, Harry Cooper, the National Gallery’s Head of Contemporary Art, and other scholars to be determined.
In the fall of 2010, the Art Institute will host a convening of both established and lesser-known Lichtenstein scholars. The goal of these closed-door sessions is an intensive and frank exchange of ideas and positions, which will be used as a springboard for catalogue contributions and exhibition-related programs. To that end, we invite proposals for 25-minute presentations, which address new, scholarly approaches to the work, influences and legacy of Roy Lichtenstein.
Proposals will be accepted until April 30, 2010. Please send 300 word proposals and a brief CV to Maureen Pskowski, Exhibition Manager, Department of Contemporary Art, Art Institute of Chicago at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected participants will be notified in June.
