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. Although Pop arose in distinct forms within each region, artists expressed a shared interest in mass media, consumerism, and figuration. International Pop navigates a fast-paced world packed with bold and thought-provoking imagery, revealing a vibrant cultural period shaped by widespread social and political revolution.

This exhibition presents an assortment of masterful drawings from the royal courts of northern India. Carefully and lovingly amassed by artist Conley Harris and architectural designer Howard Truelove, the collection features practice sketches, preparatory drawings, subtly modeled scenes, and lightly colored compositions created between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. With a variety of images at different stages of completion, the collection allows for a fascinating examination of Indian workshop practice. Although the majority served as preparatory material for opaque watercolor paintings, these revelatory drawings are celebrated in this exhibition as accomplished works of art in their own right.

Picture This features the work of four contemporary photographers for whom India is an important subject or setting: Gauri Gill, Sunil Gupta, Max Pinckers, and Pamela Singh. Diverse in nationality and place of residence, each of these artists brings a cosmopolitan perspective to his or her work. Whether photographing in rural Rajasthan or major cities like Mumbai or New York, they offer points of view that do not fit easily into categories of “insider” or “outsider.”
