Event: Pop Art & Design 1950s-1970s
Location: Barbican Art Gallery, EC2
The Barbican’s Pop Art Design show examines the relationship between pop art and design from the late 1950s to the early 1970s.
The exhibition looks at how the two artistic mediums influenced each other when the crossover between art, advertising, television, packaging and mass production began to take place in the postwar period.
The exhibition has over 200 works of art on display from artists such as Andy Warhol, Richard Hamilton, Roy Lichtenstein and Peter Blake, and by designers such as Charles & Ray Eames, Peter Murdoch and George Nelson.
The show comes to London from the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, although there is a greater focus on British artists and designers at the Barbican exhibition.
Pop Art Design is on at the Barbican Art Gallery in the City from 22 Oct to 9 Feb 2014, open daily: Sat to Wed from 10am to 6pm, Thur & Fri from 10am to 9pm, and on 1 Jan 2014 from 12 to 6pm. The Barbican is closed from 24 to 26 Dec.
