Amplifying a history commonly associated with major American figures like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, this groundbreaking survey explores Pop Art as a global phenomenon that was shaped by artists working in many different countries throughout the world.

With paintings, sculptures, assemblages, installations, prints, and films by eighty artists, the exhibition will examine the factors that shaped artistic activity in the social democracies of Europe, the military regimes of Latin America, and Japan in the aftermath of U.S. occupation. It will include sections devoted to vital hubs of Pop activity in Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, the U.K. and the U.S.

Highlights of International Pop will include works by Antônio Henrique Amaral, Evelyne Axell, Waldemar Cordeiro, Richard Hamilton, Jasper Johns, Yves Klein, Claes Oldenburg, Sigmar Polke, Martial Raysse, Gerhard Richter, Mimmo Rotella, Ed Ruscha, Niki de Saint Phalle, Ushio Shinohara, and Andy Warhol.
