DESCRIPTION

Dates:

February 24 – May 15, 2016

 

Overview

Some of the most iconic works of art from the second half of the 20th century stem from the Pop Art movement.

 

The Philadelphia Museum of Art now hosts a groundbreaking exhibit that dives deep into its history.

 

International Pop traces the emergence of the global movement of Pop Art from the 1950s to the 1970s — a time period rife with social, political and cultural upheaval — with a display of more than 150 pieces by such luminaries as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Osamu Tezuka and more.

 

The collection calls upon works from 80 artists in total and features a wide variety of mediums, including paintings, sculpture, printmaking, installation and film.

 

Classics like Jasper Johns’s Flag will be on display, but International Pop travels far beyond American borders and icons to present works from more than a dozen countries, charting an international path from London to Tokyo, Buenos Aires to New York.

 

This is the first traveling exhibition in the U.S. to present a comprehensive account of the development of Pop Art during the 1960s and 1970s. The Philadelphia Museum of Art will be its final venue and the only East Coast destination, so you’ll want to be sure to catch it before it leaves in May.

 

The Experience

Housed in the expansive Dorrance Galleries, International Pop‘s 150-plus works of art are organized in two distinct ways: via galleries spotlighting geographic hubs like Great Britain, Brazil and Japan, as well as galleries looking at artists’ common concerns and subjects.

 

Highlights include major works of art like British artist Richard Hamilton’s “Hers is a Lush Situation”, Ushio Shinohara’s “Coca-Cola Plan” (After Rauschenberg), Ed Ruscha’s “Felix” and many more.

 

Plenty of special programming opportunities and exhibit-related events will take place through its duration.
