A Matter of Taste: Art, Kitsch, and Culture
NORA ECCLES HARRISON MUSEUM OF ART, UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY
January 23, 2016 - May 7, 2016
Matter of Taste explores the boundaries between fine art, kitsch, and popular culture. For this exhibit, The Kinkade Family Foundation lent two original Thomas Kinkade paintings with their corresponding paper and canvas lithographs to be displayed. The show explored questions such as: How are these objects a reflection of “us” as a culture at large? What connections can be made between art and kitsch? How is kitsch different depending on one’s age and cultural background?
