overview

Far Out: Art from the 1960s explores art from a decade that introduced such movements as Pop, Op, Minimalism, Kinetic, Fluxus, and Conceptual Art, while weaving in the social and historical narrative of that time. The exhibition includes works by Calvin Burnett, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, Ellsworth Kelly, Miriam Schapiro, Victor Vasarely, and the Chicago Imagists. Presenting works pulled from MMoCA’s permanent collection, Far Out will be on view in the museum’s main galleries and will feature a 1960s living room furnished by Rewind Decor of Madison. The exhibition is part of the larger celebration of the Sixties organized by The Madison Reunion taking place in June 2018.
