- International Pop
Wednesday, February 24, 2016 - Sunday, May 15, 2016
- This exhibition chronicles Pop art’s emergence as a global movement, migrating from the United Kingdom and the United States to western and eastern Europe, Latin America, and Japan. Discover the many ways that artists from all over the world engaged with the rise of mass media and consumerism against a backdrop of widespread social and political revolution. Focusing on works made from 1956 to 1972, the exhibition features thrilling examples of British and American Pop alongside lesser known but equally important examples from Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, Italy, Slovakia, Japan, and other international centers of culture. Represented in the exhibition are paintings, sculptures, prints, film, and ephemera by influential artists from twenty different countries. Among them are Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Tom Wesselmann, and Ed Ruscha (US); Richard Hamilton, Pauline Boty, Peter Blake, and Clive Barker (UK); Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, and Konrad Lueg (Germany); Ushio Shinohara, Keiichi Tanaami, and Osamu Tezuka (Japan); Hélio Oiticica, Wanda Pimentel, and Antonio Dias (Brazil); and Marta Minujín, Dalila Puzzovio, and Edgardo Giménez (Argentina). School tours are offered for grades 4-12 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from February 24-May 15, 2016
