Empire of Signs, The

  • 1996 ----- color ----- 54 min ----- vhs
  • (American Visions series, Part 7) (Written and presented by Robert Hughes, art critic for Time Magazine) In the post-war era, America's power is unrivaled, and its artists make an explosive break with the past. Hughes considers the impact of Hiroshima on art, traces the development of abstract expressionism and the life of Jackson Pollack, and explores how artists as different as James Rosenquist, Claes Oldenburg, Joseph Cornell, Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns reacted to the new consumer culture. We end with the nation on the eve of divisive conflicts, as media images begin to overwhelm anything created by artists (Closed-Captioned).
