Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University

Sixteen undergraduate participants in the gateway seminar 'The Global Sixties: Race, Revolution, Sexuality' found a March 2019 trip to the Nasher Museum to be a provocative and singular experience. They explored the making of political statements through art [in the exhibition Pop América, 1965-1975] and even ‘interrogated’ a unique array of mediums … and artworks (students’ favorites were ideological Coca-Cola bottles, clothing from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, and even a charred tuxedo) to understand how the idea of the global infuses art.
