Rosenquist, Still Life, Jingles
Friday, January 04, 2008
Studio 360 sells it to you wholesale. Kurt Andersen and his guest, legendary adman George Lois, talk about the fertile and contentious relationship between art and advertising. We’ll hear from James Rosenquist, the Pop artist best known for his billboard-sized montages of consumer goods. And we’ll find out why advertising jingles were so manipulative and successful for so long. Plus, how high-end consumer catalogs are stealing the aesthetics of old Dutch still lifes.
