If you think that Pop Art is all about Campbell Soup cans, Marilyn Monroe screen silk paintings and Ben-Day dot comics, think again. Tate Modern’s highlight exhibition, The World Goes Pop, breaks new ground as it flips the page to show another side of the (previously perceived) Western art and counter-culture movement from the sixties to seventies.
Featuring artwork from sixty-five lesser known artists from Latin America, Europe, Asia, to the Middle East, the engaging, colourful, opinionated, revelatory and stunning artworks deal with politics, revolution, consumption, etc. all in the context of their own countries and culture. Get ready to witness multiple mediums, bright colours, flat graphics, and satirical messages from a different cultural perspective altogether.
