Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948 – 1960
August 25, 2022 – January 08, 2023
The Nasher Museum has jointly produced a hardcover catalogue Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948 – 1960 (Rizzoli Electa, 2020, $55) with Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, Maine. The 224-page catalogue, with new scholarship by leading experts in the field, provides a new understanding of Lichtenstein’s influential techniques of appropriation and offers the opportunity to more fully assess the artistic and cultural dynamism of postwar America.
The exhibition catalogue was co-edited by Elizabeth Finch, Lunder Curator of American Art at the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, Maine, and Marshall N. Price, Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum. Other contributors include Graham Bader, Associate Professor of Art History at Rice University; Scott Manning Stevens (Akwesasne Mohawk), Director of Native American and Indigenous Studies and Associate Professor of English at Syracuse University; and Ruth Fine, former curator at the National Gallery of Art. The catalogue was designed by Content Object Design Studio/Los Angeles. The catalogue is available for purchase at the Nasher Museum Store.
On November 2, 2021, the American Alliance of Museums awarded an honorable mention to the Lichtenstein exhibition catalogue as part of its annual Publication Design Competition.
The catalogue was recognized among 27 publications in four print categories. The 2021 contest drew 150 submissions from museums and other cultural institutions in the United States and around the world. The AAM Museums Publications Design Competition has endured for more than 30 years.
