Starting on Saturday, July 14, Fundación Proa presents An Art of Contradictions. Pop, Realisms and Politics. Brazil – Argentina, 1960. Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff and Rodrigo Alonso, the exhibition evidences the effervescence of artists, as well as the challenges they faced, as they navigated the eagerness to modernize and the urgency of revolutionary struggles.
In the 1960s, a decade of deep changes, Brazil and Argentina developed their own vision of Pop Art. The icons of Che Guevara, Coca-Cola, and the dollar bill are images of resistance and struggle. The happening and participation art left institutional spaces behind to take to the spaces of daily life.
