Jasper Johns : Seeing with the Mind's Eye
For more than sixty years, Jasper Johns has found new ways to explore how art creates meaning in the mind's eye. His most celebrated paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, with their bold colours, popular imagery, and sculptural elements, had an enormous impact on the development of pop, minimalism, and conceptual art.
Jasper Johns: Seeing with the Mind's Eye, the exhibition catalogue for a show at SFMoMA, brings together established and younger scholars with the aim of exposing a new generation to the variety of critical approaches to this contemporary master. Contributions range from historical to critical and poetic and, unlike most large surveys, take a close, in-depth look at specific works of art and series, including paintings, drawings, graphics, sculptural pieces, and illustrated books from all periods of Johns's career.
