Episode 49: Brooke talks with Louis K. Meisel of Bernarducci Meisel Gallery at 37 East 57 at 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Since 2000 Bernarducci Meisel has exhibited the work of the iconic masters of Pop Art and Photo Realism alongside that of up and coming artists.
Meisel tells Brooke about the origins of the Pop Art movement, his personal history and how he came to be involved in the visual arts.
This exhibit is basically his brainchild. He & Ai Wei Wei both collaborated on it. This is a pair that I wouldn’t have thought to put together, but the exhibit is a meeting of two artists that have more similarities and connections than meets the eye.
