Pop! Art in a Changing Britain

Saturday 24 February 2018 – Sunday 27 May 2018

Exhibition of British Pop Art from Pallant House Gallery's collection, including major paintings, sculpture and prints. It includes seminal works such as Peter Blake's The Beatles, 1962 (1963-68), Richard Hamilton's Swingeing London (1968), Jann Haworth's Cowboy (1964) and an early example of Pop printmaking, Eduardo Paolozzi’s As Is When (1965). The exhibition explores how artists in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s responded to rapid social change, as Pop Art emerged as a means of addressing the rise of mass media, the cult of celebrity, questions of identity and prevalent political concerns, issues that still resonate today.
