‘Pop America’ Reframes Pop Art, Expands Notion of ‘America’

Our artists Beatriz González and Antonio Caro are part of the exhibition "Pop América" at The Block Museum of Art of the Northwestern University. 

"Pop América, 1965–1975 challenges and reframes familiar notions of Pop Art by bringing together artists from North and South America, as well as the Caribbean. Pop América is the first exhibition to unify Latin American and Latinx expressions of Pop and explore how artists working across the hemisphere embraced its bold and colorful imagery, references to mass culture, and representations of everyday objects, signs, and symbols. The exhibition makes a timely and critical contribution to a deeper understanding of this period and the impulses behind Pop Art from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s."
