The World Goes Pop
Date(s): Sep 17, 2015 – Jan 24, 2016
Location: Bankside, London, United Kingdom
This groundbreaking exhibition will reveal how artists around the world engaged with the spirit of Pop art, from Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East. Exploding the traditional story of Pop art, The World Goes Pop is the culmination of far-reaching new research, showing how different cultures contributed, re-thought and responded to the movement.
Around 200 works from the 1960s and 1970s will be brought together, many shown in the UK for the first time.
The exhibition will reveal how Pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language for criticism and public protest.Event Site
