10:00 am - 5:00 pm    A Matter of Taste: Art, Kitsch, and Culture

Arts & Entertainment / Other

Jan. 23 – May 7, 2016 "A Matter of Taste" explores the complex relationship between art, kitsch, and culture. While a gift shop may seem the more likely place to find kitsch in a museum, "A Matter of Taste" turns this expectation upside down. Showcasing a wide range of kitsch, kitsch-like, or kitsch-inspired objects dating to the 20th and 21st centuries, this exhibition reveals the permeable and porous boundaries between fine art, kitsch, and popular culture.
