Join us for an introduction to Indian Pop, an international art movement of the 1960s and 1970s that began at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA). Today largely forgotten in art historical circles, Indian Pop had a profound impact on the visibility of Native peoples during the Red Power period, before the movement declined in the mid-1970s. This discussion will cover the cultural factors that led to Indian Pop, the teachers and students involved, and the work and career trajectories of some of Indian Pop’s major artists, including Billy War Soldier Soza, T.C. Cannon, Peter B. Jones, and Fritz Scholder. Presented by Kristine Ronan, postdoctoral Research Center Fellow; Ph.D., History of Art, University of Michigan.
