Trac­ing the art of a global su­per­power

The National - News - The Review - - Round up -

The as­sas­si­na­tion of John F Kennedy; the Apollo moon land­ings; war in Viet­nam; and the cul­ture wars – the past 60 years have been ones of tur­moil and dy­namism in the United States. Artists’ re­sponses to th­ese tu­mul­tuous times can be viewed at The Amer­i­can Dream: Pop to the Present at the Bri­tish Mu­seum in Lon­don. From the pop art ex­plo­sion of the 1960s to to­day, the ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes works from gi­ants of mod­ern Amer­i­can art such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschen­berg and Julie Mehretu. The artists ex­hib­ited also ad­dress di­vi­sions in US so­ci­ety to­day. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til June 18. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.british­mu­seum.org
