The World Goes Pop!
With Frieze fast approaching we welcomed Flavia Freigeri, curator of the Tate Modern’s ground breaking The World Goes Pop! who told the global story of pop art, breaking new ground along the way, and revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon. From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this explosive exhibition connected the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement. Politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk – all will be explored and laid bare in eye-popping Technicolor and across many media, from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.
