Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg: Transformation of the Ordinary

The Dawn Thomas Team likes to bring you fun activities around the Silicon Valley and today we have: Jim Dine and Claes Oldenburg: Transformation of the Ordinary!

“Jim Dine and Claes OLdenburg have been linked since the early 1906s, when they both participated in “Happenings” on New York’s Lower East Side. Because they were mutually inspired by objects from the street, both were included in several early exhibitions of Pop Art. Dine and Oldenburg (now 78 and 84 respectively) are known internationally for their transformations of household items into lifelike objects with monumental qualities.

This selection features approximately 20 prints in which the artists, with characteristic wit and introspection, give life to the inanimate.”
