Despite the wide appeal of images of pop art, the general public still does not know about the participation and significant contribution of Latin American artists working simultaneously and together with their American and European colleagues. Art Museum Nasher presents "Pop Art America, 1965-1975", the first exhibition with a hemispheric vision of pop art. The exhibition will make a timely and critical contribution to a more complete understanding of this artistic period.
Artists at the exhibition create a vital dialogue that crosses national borders. Among them are Judy Buck, Louis Cruz Azaceta, Jorge de la Vega, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Combined by using pop art’s rich visual strategies, artists have made a bold contribution to conceptualism, performance, and new media art, as well as to social protest, justice movements, and debate about freedom.
