Now on view at the Walker Art Center, International Pop is a survey of Pop art with a global focus, supplementing the well recognized developments of American and British Pop art with similar and simultaneous visual and conceptual exploits by artists in other countries. Curated by Darsie Alexander and Bartholomew Ryan, International Pop features the work of more than 100 artists including Genpei Akasegawa (Japan), Antônio Henrique Amaral (Brazil), Evelyne Axell (Belgium), Erró (Iceland), Öyvind Fahlström (Sweden), Hélio Oiticica (Brazil), Peter Roehr (Germany), Mimmo Rotella (Italy), Kudo Tetsumi (Japan), Jorge de la Vega (Argentina), and Jerzy Ryszard “Jurry” Zielinski (Poland), to name some of the less frequently mentioned figures represented in the exhibition.
International Pop Cinema, a program of film screenings curated by Ed Halter in conjunction with the exhibition, presents five one-hour screenings daily during the exhibition. After International Pop closes at the Walker Art Center on August 29, the exhibition will travel to the Dallas Museum of Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
