International Pop

October 11, 2015 - January 17, 2016 │ Dallas

This exhibition chronicles the global emergence of Pop art from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s and explores the diverse array of international Pop-related production.

“International Pop,” which was organized by and premiered at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, features approximately 125 artworks by over 100 artists drawn from over 13 countries on four continents. Following the Dallas presentation, the show will come to the Philadelphia Museum of Art through 2016.

While previous exhibitions and prevailing scholarship have primarily focused on the dominance of Pop activity in New York and London during this time, this exhibition examines work from artists across the globe who were confronting many of the same radical developments, laying the foundation of the emergence of an art form that embraced figuration, media strategies and mechanical processes with a new spirit of urgency and exuberance. This groundbreaking exhibition follows the trajectories of Pop and its critical points of contact with global developments in art such as Nouveau Réalisme (France), Concretism and Neo-Concretism (Brazil), The Art of Things (Argentina), Anti-Art (Japan), Capitalist Realism (Germany), Happenings and Neo-Dada.
