Summary: With an introduction by John McEnroe (in a video created by Barbara Kruger), this program focuses on the influences a consumerist society and pop culture exert on contemporary art and vice-versa. Featured are the experimental home, "furniture" designs, clothing, and artificial island of Andrea Zittel. Paintings of Michael Ray Charles analyze the historical relationship between advertising images and cultural stereotypes. Mel Chin connects to culture and commerce through an eclectic body of work that deals with everything from television's Melrose Place to his Detroit Revival Field project, which attempts to clean polluted plots of land.
