Pop culture was in art, now art’s in pop culture, in me
In Soviet Russia…
Although pop culture influenced art, pop itself wasn’t a proper artform. Now pop culture has bloomed, and Lady Gaga’s apart of that movement.
Notice the words “art” and “pop” together. It’s another subliminal message for her album.
Art used to take pieces of pop culture and bring it into the artistic world, such as that in Warhol’s pop art. Through her fame and popularity, Gaga is reversing this by bringing pieces of fine art into pop culture, for the masses.
This has been shown with her collaborations with Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic, Inez and Vinoodh, and other famous artists of the present day. It also goes with her whole ARTPOP theme of turning “pop art” inside-out.
