You can see it for yourself in a new exhibit opening Friday, January 12, at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Called “Postmodern Art and the Age of Spectacle,” the show features work by artists such as Philip Glass, Frank Stella, and Michael Kors, and explores how modern art has been shaped by the media’s relentless, and often bizarre, fascination with “reality.”
“We’re not talking about ‘The Matrix,’ or ‘Gravity’ or anything like that,” curator Elizabeth Schulte said of the show.
“This is a really fascinating work by a painter who’s so completely immersed in what it is that he’s doing, which is an illusion.”
The exhibition is the first of three shows at the museum that will take place this month.
The first is called “Postmedia: A Century of Spectacular.”
This is a look at the art of the postmodern, which combines the latest trends with the works of the artists and their critics.
The show is also curated by Art History Professor Steven Novella, who teaches at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The second is called Postmedia: The Art of Postmodernism.
This exhibition examines artists like David Sirota, John Singer Sargent, and Frank Stella.
This one takes a look into the history of the work, from its earliest beginnings to its current form.
The exhibit also features a collection of prints from the exhibition that will be on display at the Museum’s upcoming gallery opening in 2019.
The third show is called The Postmedia, a show exploring the art world from its origins through the current era.
The Whitney exhibition, which runs through February, will also feature a collection from artist Frank Stella that has yet to be exhibited.
Stella, who is best known for his paintings of American soldiers in Vietnam, also curated a show at the New Museum in New York last year that included prints by Frank Stella and others.
It is the third time Stella has curated a work at the Art Institute of Chicago.
“I love Frank Stella,” Schulto said.
“We have a lot of great artists in Chicago, and they are always in touch.
They’re always interested in what we’re doing.”

She said that it is not enough to have an art museum that focuses on a single style, or an exhibit about the artist’s specific style.
The museum should also take into account the wider community that contributes to the art it is teaching.
“This is something that’s really important,” she said.
“[The art museum] is an extension of the wider arts community and is an important part of the broader arts community.”
A gallery opening on Thursday of new works by artists like Philip Glass is also part of an exhibition called The Art School of Modernism.
