ISLAA is proud to be among the supporters of the exhibition "Pop América, 1965–1975" at the Nasher Museum.


DESCRIPTION FROM THE NASHER MUSEUM

Despite the wide appeal of Pop art’s engaging imagery, the broader public remains unaware of the participation and significant contribution of Latin American and Latino/a artists working at the same time and alongside their U.S. and European counterparts. The Nasher Museum presented Pop América, 1965-1975, the first exhibition with a hemispheric vision of Pop. The exhibition made a timely and critical contribution to a more complete understanding of this artistic period.

“We are incredibly honored to present this exhibition, which has been years in the making and reflects groundbreaking research by guest curator and Duke professor Esther Gabara,” said Sarah Schroth, Mary D.B.T. and James H. Semans Director of the Nasher Museum. “As the first exhibition to present a vision of Pop on the American continent as a whole, Pop Américamakes a critical contribution to understanding this artistic period and Latin America’s rich artistic heritage. At the same time, this will also be the first exhibition to consider Pop art throughout the Americas as an intentional strategy for communicating sensitive, politically challenging content.”
