Pop Crítico/Political Pop: Expressive Figuration in the Americas, 1960s-1980s
The Blanton Museum presents Pop Crítico/Political Pop: Expressive Figuration in the Americas, 1960s-1980s.
In the 1960s, artists working in the United States and Latin America manipulated Pop art’s color and flash into a tool for social and political critique. Chilean curator Soledad García called this “Pop crítico,” or “critical Pop.”
This exhibition celebrates American, Latinx, and Latin American artists from the Pop art era, celebrating their artworks' visual similarities and shared attitude of rebellion.
