Jean-Michel Basquiat, Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Jenny Holzner, Barbara Kruger, Paul McCarthy, and Cady Noland. Seven controversial American artists are featured in Bye Bye American Pie, an exhibition exploring the ever-evolving facets of American culture: economics, politics, and America as an ideal.

Curated by Philip Larratt-Smith, the work resonates and critiques the changing state of U.S. culture from the 1970s to the present. With these world-renowned artists together in a single exhibition, a provocative survey of American cultural history is offered, celebrated, and gives way to analyze the deconstruction of multiple subcultures reinforced by television and Hollywood.

Nan Goldin’s Aperture published book, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is available here and was most recently featured in Aperture issue 197. Barbara Kruger was featured in issue 138.
