The American Counterculture

Christopher Gair

Edinburgh University Press

Unlike the chapter on art in section one, this chapter focuses on figures who do not generally feature in accounts of the history of American Art. It commences with a look at the role of artists operating around Haight-Ashbury and at the importance of posters for psychedelic rock concerts and at album cover artwork. It then assesses more overtly political West Coast art, such as the ‘Peace Tower’ erected in LA in 1966, before returning to New York and Andy Warhol’s Factory.

Keywords:   Poster art, Mati Klarwein, Stanley Mouse, Wes Wilson, LSD, Peace Tower, Andy Warhol, Exploding Plastic Inevitable
