POP! Art in a Changing Britain

February 24 2018 - May 7 2018

Pop exhibition

Where? Pallant House Gallery, Sussex

What? A colourful exploration of how artists in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s responded to rapid social change will be right at your fingertips at Pallant House later this year. Pop Art emerged as a way of addressing the rise of mass media, the cult of celebrity, questions of identity and prevalent political concerns. These are all issues that are still relevant today. Highlights include: Peter Blake’s ‘The Beatles, 1962’ (1963-68), Richard Hamilton’s ‘Swingeing London’ (1968), Jann Haworth’s ‘Cowboy’ (1964) and an early example of Pop printmaking, Eduardo Paolozzi’s ‘As Is When’ (1965).
