Exhibition: International Pop

April 11 — August 29, 2015

Walker Art Center, Minneapolis

"Most art enthusiasts believe they have a good sense of Pop Art: It’s an American movement of the 1960s with origins in the U.K.; it brought low culture (Coke cans, comic strips) into the realm of high art; and Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, and Roy Lichtenstein were its major players. Almost—but not quite.

The internationalization of the Western art world over the last two decades has encouraged deeper art-historical research into the global developments of the 1960s, inspiring scholars to reposition Pop art as a dynamic, worldwide phenomenon, overturning the dominant understanding as erroneously American-centric and devoid of many important artists and ideas.

... International Pop ... is the first major exhibition to make this history of Pop public. (A second, entitled The World Goes Pop, will open at the Tate in London in September.)"

International Pop is on view at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis from April 11 through August 29; it will then travel to the Dallas Museum of Art (1717 N Harwood St.; 214-922-1200) and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy; 215-763-8100).
