Les Annees Pop, the

Les Annees Pop, the current show at the Pompidou, looks back at the 60's, a wonderful view of things I knew firsthand, like blowup chairs, the covers of all the Beatles albums, the Bob Dylan poster with the multi-colored hair, and the pale pinks, yellows and blues of Tupperware. And there was the satisfaction of being able to walk from room to room and immediately identify the artist by name, of course including this Robert Indiana 'Love' piece, thanks to all those trips to the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo. The architecture on display from Archigram and Cedric Price, among others, fascinated me as it must have also fascinated the Pompidou architects, serving as their inspiration for the Pompidou's exposed structure and bright colors. Throughout the show, I caught myself dancing a bit to the background music of the Beatles, the Monkees and the Kinks. The only thing wrong was, I didn't expect to be so much a part of a retrospective.
