I WANT CANDY:
THE SWEET STUFF IN AMERICAN ART
HUDSON RIVER MUSEUM
In the years since the advent of Pop Art in the late 1950’s, contemporary artists have embraced confections as one of their most popular subjects. Marylyn Dintenfass’ Good & Plenty: Ultra Blue, 2005 takes a well-known candy brand and emphasizes its elemental, abstract forms. Dintenfass’ candies could as easily be blood platelets or bacteria- or perhaps sugar induce morphing of human DNA.
The I Want Candy exhibition catalog is available through the Hudson River Museum’s gift shop.
