SEE // Sinister Pop
Sola Agustsson

Pop Art usually brings to mind Campbell’s Soup ads and bright, cheery depictions of American culture, but Sinister Pop uncovers a darker side of Pop, the kind they don’t show on TV. Pieces from artists such as Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Judith Bernstein, and Jim Nutt showcase the grotesque side of the 1960s and reflect on issues such as consumerism, women’s rights, and the Vietnam War.

Sinister Pop is currently on view at the Whitney Museum as part of a multiyear series of exhibitions reassessing the museum’s collection.
