Pop Art in Print at Banbury Museum

9 & 10 February

Pop Art at Banbury

Featuring work by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Damien Hirst and more

Drawn from the outstanding collection of Pop Art graphics from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, this exhibition showcases work by iconic artists of the 60s and 70s alongside contemporary artists influenced by the modern age’s most important art movement.

Pop Art reflected a fascination with celebrities and brands. Pop artists recognised the potential of prints to communicate ideas quickly and cheaply, creating art which both mirrored and critiqued the American Dream.

Inspired by commercial graphics and popular culture, the movement generated an innovative and prolific culture of printmaking. Bringing together over 60 works by more than 30 artists, this exhibition offers a comprehensive and exciting view of artists working in this style from the 1960s to the early 2000s.

Exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London
