Artwork by Daniel Spoerri «Tableau Piège», 1972 (Snare-Picture) is now on display at S.M.A.K. City Museum for Contemporary Art in Ghent, inside the exhibition “POP ART. From Warhol to Panamarenko” open until May 8, 2022.
Spoerri’s artwork is both a tangible souvenir of a dinner with friends and a subtle criticism of the consumer society, elevating banal utensils to the status of art.
Pop art is indeed a visual response to the cultural changes that took place in the 1960s like consumerism, mass consumption, sexual morality, technological progress and gender equality.
The exhibition includes a selection from the S.M.A.K. museum collection and forty works loaned from the Matthys-Colle private collection, as part of a unique public-private partnership in Belgium.
