This exhibit is a reaction global, military conflict proliferated and social and political unrest from the 50’s-80’s.
The years between 1950 and 1980 were beset by upheaval. Around the globe, military conflict proliferated and social and political unrest flared. Artists responded to these developments by incorporating absurdity, disorder, nonsense, disorientation, and repetition into their work. In the process, they destabilize space and perception, give form to extreme mental, emotional, and physical states, and derange otherwise logical structures and techniques. Delirious explores the embrace of irrationality among American, Latin American, and European artists.
This is serious
We can make you delirious
You should have a healthy fear of us
Cause to much of us is dangerous
