MoPop Announces 2024 Exhibitions

MoPop unveiled plans for the museum’s 2024 exhibitions last night at “MoPop Countdown to 2024,” a private event held at the Sky Church. The new exhibitions will focus on the ever-evolving role pop culture plays in society, history, activism and art, and they will also address society’s influence on pop culture itself. “We’re talking about the power of pop culture,” MoPop CEO, Michele Y. Smith said in her opening remarks. “It comes from the Beehives, the Swifties, the sneakerheads…the power of everyday people and communities.” 
The 2024 exhibitions will take up almost 10,000 square feet of museum space, and feature immersive content, interactive exhibits, social commentary, myriad artifacts and memorabilia from the Paul G. Allen Foundation, as well as opportunities for visitor conversation, feedback and collaboration.
Here are the highlights for 2024:
Massive: The Power of Pop Culture
A long-term exhibition showcasing permanent collection and new acquisitions.
Exhibition opening: March 16, 2024.
Keith Haring: A Radiant Legacy, presented by PAN ART Connections
A large art exhibition featuring works of prominent American artist, Keith Haring (1958-1990).
Exhibition opening: October 11, 2024 and runs through March 24, 2025.
Closing out an evening of presentations were performances from King Youngblood and closing remarks from Smith. “Pop culture is constantly moving and the role of museums is changing,” said Smith, “And at MoPop, we don’t want to just keep up, we want to set the pace.”
Current photographic exhibition “Contact High: A Visual History of Hip Hop” will close with an evening of panel conversations, music, and refreshments on January 5, 2024.
