International Exhibition of the New Realists (New York, November 1-December 1, 1962) was an art exhibition held in the fall of 1962 by New York art dealer Sidney Janis.

It is considered a groundbreaking exhibition, an international survey of new to the scene contemporary American Pop artists and a related group of European artists associated with the art movement called New Realism. The Sidney Janis Gallery exhibition included Wayne Thiebaud, Richard Lindner, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Tom Wesselmann, George Segal, Marisol, Jean Tinguely, Yves Klein, Arman, Mario Schifano, Enrico Baj, Mimmo Rotella, Christo, Martial Raysse, Öyvind Fahlström and several others.

It came after the Nouveau Réalisme exhibition at the Galerie Rive Droite ("Le Nouveau Realisme a Paris et a New York") in Paris, and marked the international debut of a highly significant group of artists who were soon to give rise to what came to be called Pop Art and Nouveau Réalisme." --Sholem Stein
