Until January 24th, Tate Modern receives the exhibition “The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop”, an amazing, engaging and colorful show about, as expected, pop art. But, and although this is a pop art exhibition, is not about the “artistic movement” as you know it.
This exhibition shows that, unlike the usual associations, pop art was not about the consumer culture, but was often a subversive universal language of protest. More importantly, that it wasn’t confined to Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein! From latin american to asian artists, you can discover more than 200 artworks that celebrate the various strands of pop art, visiting pieces produced between the 60’s and 70’s, and that show how the movement was received at different countries and cultures.
10am–6pm, Sunday – Thursday
10am–10pm, Friday – Saturday
