Robert Longo Exhibit

Event Details

  • Palm Springs Art Museum will present Robert Longo—Storm of Hope: Law & Disorder, an exhibition of recent works by this American artist. The exhibition features seven monumental-scale charcoal drawings chronicling our time through critical, social, and political subjects.
  •   The artist focuses our attention on images familiar to us—either found in the media or photographed by the artist himself—which he transforms to create what he calls “the perfect image.” His visual language developed out of an acknowledgement of and reverence for the ubiquity of existing media images—what the artist refers to as “the image storm” that surrounds us. Since the 1980s, he has been associated with the Pictures Generation, a group of artists who looked to understand images as neither neutral nor objective, but rather with an inherent point of view that could be uncovered, revealed, and deployed as a form of critique and beauty.
  • This exhibition is organized by Palm Springs Art Museum and curated by Rochelle Steiner, Chief Curator.
  • The museum is open until 7:00 PM on Thursdays and is free from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
