Pop Art

Pop Art’s influence extended way beyond what hung on walls.

A major new exhibition at the Barbican examines the influence the movement had on the design world. Pop Art Design, which runs from 21st October to 9 Feb 2014, takes a look at the “intense dialogue between the fields of design and art” from the 1950s-70s. The exhibition brings together works from both disciplines. Pop Art is represented with pieces from Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Judy Chicago and Roy Lichtenstein, all shown alongside objects from Charles and Ray Eames, Allen Jones and George Nelson among others. The retrospective also takes a look at Pop Art’s influence on other creative forms, including film, photography and graphic design. www.barbican.org.uk
