Beginning in the mid-1950s, a social movement evolved from the bohemian underground cultures of San Francisco and New York. Known as the Beat Generation, these young poets, writers, musicians, and artists rejected the conservative conventions of postwar America. They often met in coffee shops and bars to exchange ideas about Zen philosophy, existentialism, and life’s deeper mysteries.
By the 1960s, the Beat Generation of San Francisco merged a range of musical, literary, and performative elements together that evolved into an early period of Funk art. Drawn exclusively from the collection of Phoenix Art Museum, the works on view in Sweet Land of Funk capture the individualism and self-expression of the Funk art style and highlight a range of movements from the Bay Area between 1945 and 1980, including Abstract Expressionism, Bay Area Figuration, and Dude Ranch Dada.
