EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Fighting Men This exhibition’s three iconic artists—Leon Golub, Peter Voulkos, and Jack Kirby—tackled violence, aggression, and the meaning of manhood through their disparate mediums. Golub was known to literally use a meat cleaver in his figural paintings depicting urban violence, government oppression, and world dictators. Voulkos attacked his clay—pounding, tearing, and smashing—to create enormous, macho, abstract ceramic sculptures that, combined with his three decades’ steerage of Berkley’s ceramics program, spurred a revolution that elevated pottery from a craft to a fine art. And Kirby cocreated some of the archetypes of modern manliness, the comic heroes Captain America, The Hulk, and Iron Man. Fighting Men will spar with questions about the relationship between messages and vulgar mediums, traditional artistic tools and progressive political views, and the lasting impact of these three revolutionaries on a new generation of artists
