Description:

Join us for a colorful, new look at Latin American Pop Art.

Pop América, 1965–1975 challenges and reframes familiar notions of Pop Art by bringing together artists from North, Central, and South America, as well as the United States and the Caribbean. Pop América is the first exhibition to unify Latin American expressions of Pop and explore how its bold and colorful imagery, references to mass culture, and representations of everyday objects, signs, and symbols were embraced by artists working across the hemisphere. The exhibition makes a timely and critical contribution to a deeper understanding of this period and the impulses behind Pop Art from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s.

Tuesday Lunchtime Tours

Take part in a lunch-time walk-through of Pop América led by a member of the curatorial team. These free tours kick off in the museum lobby.
