As a complement MetaModern and Artists Including Me: William Wegman, this exhibition features works from the permanent collection that directly reference canonical works of art, specific artists, and art historical styles.

Sponsored in part by the Lorado Taft Lectureship on Art Fund/College of Fine + Applied Arts, The Art Theater Co-op, School of Art + Design, and Krannert Art Museum

Some artists whose work is on display convey a sense of adoration for their subject—either playfully or with reverence—while others use their works to critique society, religion, or the art historical canon.

Focusing on works from the 1960s through the early 2000s, the exhibition highlights artists such as Vija Celmins, Salvador Dalí, Marlene Dumas, Yves Klein, Richard Pettibone, Mel Ramos, Karl Wirsum, and Huang Yan.
