The Pop Art movement began in the 50s, reflecting the post-war society fascination with popular culture. It celebrated everyday objects such as soup cans, washing powder, comic strips and soda bottles etc., transforming the banal into icons that characterized the era.
As we move into the second decade of the millennia, pop culture has never been more celebrated. A resurgence of this movement can be seen the world over, influencing artists from Latin America, Europe, Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Japan.
POP! POP! pays homage to the pioneers of this movement whilst exploring its legacy.
