International Pop: Becoming Pop



In the early 1960s, as artists around the world responded to an onslaught of advertising and pop-culture imagery, they earned labels from critics and the public alike, from the “new vulgarians” to “commonists,” and their work was variously categorized as neo-Dada, polymaterialism, new realism, and Pop art. In the first installment of our three-part documentary series, presented in conjunction with the exhibition International Pop, we look at Pop’s global emergence.
