en Limba Engleză Paperback – 14 dec 2023
Highlighting intersections of gender, race, and class and their explosive encounters with Pop Art during the Long Sixties, this book offers a new critical reading of Pop for the 21st century. 'a brilliant and important corrective to much writing on Pop art' - Jo Applin, The Courtauld Institute of Art, LondonFeaturing an array of rigorous chapters that examine the work of over 20 artists from 5 continents, Pop Art and Beyond transcends the borders of individual and national contexts, and suspends hierarchies to create a space for the work of artists like Andy Warhol and the women of the Black Arts Movement to converse. Casting an inclusive look at the intersectional complexities of difference in Pop at a moment that gave rise to a plethora of radical social movements and identity politics, it contributes bold new perspectives on Pop's heterogeneity.While this book introduces revelatory non-canonical artists into the Pop context or amplifies the careers of others, it is not limited to the confines of fine art. Chapters explore the intersecting variables of oppression and liberation in rituals of youth subcultures as well as practices across media with Pop sources and parallels ranging from Native American objects, Harlem advertisements, and Cordel literature, to stand-up comedy, music, fashion, and design. Pop Art and Beyond thus widens the conversation about what Pop was and what it can be for contemporary art in its struggle for social justice and critiques of power.

Pop Art and Beyond: Gender Race and Class in the Global Sixties is the perfect response to today's urgent calling for ever more credible art histories that center recognition of artists and practices that have tended to be erased or downplayed within the dominant canon. The range of texts in the volume will prove indispensable in further building on scholarship that unsettles and challenges stale, hegemonic readings of Pop Art. As such, this book makes an invaluable contribution to art history and decisively signals the direction of progressive academic study. The global reach of this volume, together with the erudition of its contributors, ensure that scholars now have access to new, rigorous, and persuasive research into important aspects of modern art.
This book is a brilliant and important corrective to much writing on Pop art. It offers an urgent analysis and expansion of the material, geographic, and political framing of Pop art. Each of the fifteen original and exhaustively researched chapters shed important new and critical light on the raced, gendered, and classed aspects of Pop art and its artists.
The authors in this ground-breaking collection make vital, incisive and deeply energising interventions into debates on Pop art, together achieving a major intersectional re-examination of Pop which attends to gender, race, class and sexuality, while illuminating and complicating formulations of 'global' Pop. Required reading for scholars, curators and students alike.
Hadler rethinks the very idea of the "revolutionary icon" within Pop Art history in writing about the interconnections between groundbreaking stand-up comedians like Richard Pryor, Jackie"Moms" Mabley, and Lenny Bruce, and the feminist, anti-racist Pop Art of the era.
