For as soon as unmissable really means you shouldn’t miss it. Unmissable!
– Andrew Frost, The Guardian
Pop art exploded on the social scene in the early 1960s as a fresh generation of musicians rebelled against ‘high art’ to embrace the field of marketing and advertising, movie stars, pop music music and consumerism.
This summer Pop to popism gets control of the Gallery with more than 200 works examining the beginnings of pop art, its heady high duration and its suffering history both in Australian Continent and abroad.
See masterpieces particularly Roy Lichtenstein’s very first comic-style artwork Look Mickey, Andy Warhol’s Triple Elvis and David Hockney’s Portrait of a singer. For the first time, Australian musicians – including Martin Sharp, Howard Arkley, Brett Whiteley and Maria Kozic – tend to be showcased with regards to worldwide colleagues.
Featuring works from over 45 lenders globally – including the Andy Warhol Museum, Tate and Museum of Modern Art – Pop to popism is a component for the Sydney International Art Series, and is exclusive to Sydney.
