The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop

Exhibition / England
September 17, 2015 - January 24, 2016
Tate Modern (London)
Bankside
London SE1 9TG

This explosive exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement. The exhibition reveals how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest – a language that is more relevant today than ever.

Politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk – all are explored and laid bare in eye-popping Technicolor and across many media, from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.

Grantees: Tadanori Yokoo, Ushio Shinohara
