Performing Pop: Marta Minujín and the ‘Argentine Image-Makers’

2015

Abstract

The June 1966 issue of Arts Magazine heralded the Argentine artist Marta Minujín’s arrival on the international art scene as a ‘Latin Answer to Pop’. This article seeks to complicate Minujín’s affiliation with pop art, arguing that she performed this identification strategically, playing pop aesthetics off against happenings and nouveau réalisme in a way that prompts comparison with the works of her Argentine contemporaries.
