This fall, the WPI will host Pop Places 1958–1966, a series of mid-day webinars, each dedicated to a different key New York exhibition space of the era. What became known as Pop emerged from an array of sites, where artists, gallerists and critics collectively worked through and developed the forms, ideas and challenges that would later become identified with the movement. These talks will focus on the downtown New York scene, while making connections to other important early Pop sites around the country and the world.
