This exhibition of works from the 1960s and beyond features Pop and Minimal artists, as well as the work of key figures exploring the human form as subject. The 1960s saw a fresh focus on the external world, with many artists shifting emphasis from the act of creation to the means of production and provoking dialogue about the nature of art itself. This presentation features works by Richard Artschwager, Philip Guston, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol, among others.

Pop, Minimal, and Figurative Art is the result of an innovative partnership established in 2009 between the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection and the San Francisco Museum of Museum Art. The galleries showcase the shared strengths and complementary nature of our holdings through presentations that blend artworks from the Fishers with pieces from the museum’s collection and occasionally other lenders.
