Spider-Man in TV Lounge

Saturday, Jul 7 - Friday, Sep 7, 2012

Coinciding with the theatrical release of The Amazing Spider-Man, each week TV Lounge (in Behind the Screen) will feature an episode of the animated television series Spider-Man (1967), Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (1981), and the latest installation, The Ultimate Spider-Man (2012).

TV Lounge (1988), a Museum-commissioned artwork by Jim Isermann (b. 1955), is a riff on a mid-1960s suburban rec room: brightly colored wall decorations derived from the patterns of Op Art, upholstery with plastic slipcovers, a shag carpet, and a yellow Kentile floor.
