During the second half of the twentieth century, mass media and popular culture gained an unprecedented influence in America; Pop art was both a product and a critique of this dramatic social change. Gathered entirely from local holdings and the SFMOMA collection, Pop! includes 100 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Pieces by luminary New York artists such as Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, and Roy Lichtenstein are presented alongside works by California artists Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Arneson, among others, underscoring the role of the West Coast in this pivotal movement.
