POP ART IN PRINT
Tue 23 Jan – Sat 28 Apr Main Gallery - Free
Pop Art in Print brings together over seventy works from the outstanding collection of Pop graphics belonging to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, featuring artists such as Andy Warhol, Patrick Caulfield, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, David Hockney, Allen Jones, Roy Lichtenstein and Ed Ruscha. Prints are central to the story of Pop Art, and this first V&A exhibition of Pop Art presents 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. Many of the most iconic works of the genre are included alongside printed work in other media such as textiles, wallpaper and music industry posters.
