Pop Crítico/Political Pop: Expressive Figuration in the Americas, 1960s-1980s

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 16, 2022

In the 1960s Pop art in the Americas took a turn to the dark side. Artists working in both the United States and Latin America increasingly manipulated Pop’s colorful and flashy representation of the familiar into a tool for social and political critique. Juxtaposing works by American and Latin American artists in the Blanton’s collection, this exhibition explores how artists adopted Pop artistic language to voice a political conscience, often veiling messages within their art.
