Description

Vibrant, sexy and very much of the moment

Pop Art reflected a fascination with the iconic status of celebrities and brands. Pop artists recognised the potential of prints to communicate ideas quickly and cheaply, creating art which both mirrored and critiqued the American Dream.
Drawing from the V&A’s outstanding collection of Pop Art graphics, this is the V&A’s first exhibition of Pop Art prints. Bringing together over 70 works by more than 30 artists, it offers a comprehensive and exciting view of artists working in this style from the 1960s to the early 2000s. Inspired by commercial graphics and popular culture, the movement generated an innovative and prolific culture of printmaking.
The exhibition features the work of well-known Pop artists including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Patrick Caulfield and Richard Hamilton, as well as contemporary artists whose work is strongly influenced by the Pop Art phenomenon, such as Gavin Turk, Julian Opie and Damien Hirst.
Exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Books, prints and gifts celebrating Pop Art are available from the Shop at RAMM.
