Pop América, 1965-1975, a travelling exhibition will be at the Nasher Museum of Art from February 21-July 21, 2019 after its time at The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas.  Featuring Latino/a and Latin American Pop artists working at the same time as their counterparts in the United States and Europe, the exhibition makes a timely and critical contribution to a more complete understanding of this artistic period.  Pop América features nearly 100 artworks that connect Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, and the U.S., sparking a fundamental reconsideration and expansion of Pop. Introducing new historical frameworks reshapes debates over Pop’s perceived political neutrality, social inclusiveness, and aesthetic innovations in the U.S.
