"The Pop is love, because it accepts anything. The Pop is dropping the bomb. " These words of Robert Indiana - one of the leading exponents of American popular culture - well hint at one of the basic aspects of Pop Art, in every corner and in every expressive phenomenon: the contradiction.
Its evolution is presented as an infinite chain of revolutions that drags behind the warlike clang-garde, as well as the peaceful representation of the recurrence, the amazing magic of uniformity.
What is pop lives and produces instant: there is a continued dimension, there is no historical perspective if not momentary. The possibility of serial reproduction of a work of art to give up paradoxically - to any theory of eternity, but allowed to accept and make use of a sort of permanent enrichment of the visual material. An extraordinary attempts at assimilation and comprehensive representation that emphasizes and makes the subject - sometimes even beyond and beyond their intentions - the mechanisms underlying the contemporary society.
The social context within which the work was created and developed no less important than the object itself: what is nothing more than this comes from, and could not be otherwise - to paraphrase "Candidly" Voltaire -.
There are no schools or guidelines which may play a "style" pop, but only an enlarged perception of reality able to capitalize on the effects of visual imagery and universal restore their vitality.
The artists in this exhibition gathered together - for whole - this legacy as the natural evolution of a way of making art that in no way could you repeat iconographic conventions or stereotyped images of living - the pop imagery - representation of the changing nature of contemporary life.
Over the decades have changed the techniques, means and methods of expression, crumbled and confused the last representatives of a work of art, it is aged a particular type of visual perception: what remains intact is varied diversity the manifold holding artists as far apart in balance over a single narrative line.
It 's time summarized in the vision of the image, a force that moves from the inside to release the subversive power of your generosity.
Why Pop is all that is also its opposite, is what stirs exaggeration and dates back from the precipice, is "popular, transient, ironic, clever, sexy, young man." (R. Hamilton)
