Celebrating the 1960s

Saturday, August 24, 2019

Celebrating the 1960s

Following World War II, the movement known as Abstract Expressionism came to dominate the art world. Artists of this movement emphasized emotions over objectivity in their works, welcoming accident and chance. None represented the movement more than Jackson Pollock, whose oversized drip paintings became the most celebrated works of his day.

But it wasn’t long before a brash group of young artists rebelled against all that Pollock represented. During the 1960s, the new movements of Pop, Minimalism and Photorealism approached artmaking in a cool, calculated and impersonal manner. Pop artists focused upon familiar images like comic strips and supermarket products. Minimalists pared down their works to essential shapes and colors, often painting with invisible brushstrokes. Photorealists based their works exclusively on camera imagery, which they replicated with deadpan precision. These movements reacted against the elitism of most fine art by celebrating the commercial, sensational, and even vulgar sides of everyday modern life.

Looking at the Collection: Celebrating the 1960s features a selection of Pop, Minimalist, and Photorealist works from the Museum’s permanent collection, executed by American artists who rose to prominence during this momentous decade. Included are works by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, and Richard Estes — all of whom epitomize the unique spirit that defines the decade of the 1960s.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Saturday, August 24, 2019

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Parental discretion is advised.

The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year.

To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisive war that left a deep and lasting impression on American life.

Huntsville Photographic Society: 2019 Members Showcase

Huntsville Photographic Society: 2019 Members Showcase

This annual juried selection of approximately 50 photographs by the highly talented members of the Huntsville Photographic Society will include both color and black and white photography in a range of styles. Each year, the exhibition is juried around a common theme. This year’s theme is Chiaroscuro. The word derives from the Italian chiaro, meaning clear or bright, and the Latin oscuro, meaning dark or obscure. In the visual arts, it defines a technique of exaggerating light and shadow as they define three-dimensional objects. The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings.

The Huntsville Photographic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of photography in Huntsville and the surrounding area through informative programs, member contests, and special events. The HPS Members’ Showcase is an annual exhibition jointly organized by the Huntsville Photographic Society and the Huntsville Museum of Art.
