PRINT Summer 1965


At the invitation of the United States Information Agency, the Pasadena Art Museum has been selected to organize the United States section of the forthcoming VIII Sao Paulo Bienal. The entire feature section of Artforum this month is devoted to a preview of works by the seven artists selected by Walter Hopps, the Museum’s director. The American section will be shown alongside sections from over fifty nations which will participate in the Bienal from September 4, 1965 to November 28, 1965.

The pleasure which Artforum takes in presenting this preview of the American section is perhaps compounded by the fact that many of the artists presented in the exhibition have received extensive attention in past issues of Artforum. Indeed, for more than a few, Artforum has been the only publication which has given prominent and consistent coverage to their art. It is gratifying to think that their inclusion in the 1965 Sao Paulo Bienal will bring them to the cognizance of an even wider public.
