The Real and the Represented: Reading Roy Lichtenstein's Images

Date + Time

Tuesday, December 07, 2004
11:00 a.m. - noon

Location

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

Fascinated by the difference between the real and the represented, Lichtenstein drew visual material from a wide range of sources, from comic books to art history. His revisions of this material often drastically altered its original meaning. Shirkey discusses Lichtenstein's concern with illusion and how we as viewers are trained to read his images and make meaning.
