Pop Art in Print
12 May – 26 August 2018
This is the first exhibition of its kind drawn from the V&A's outstanding collection of Pop Art graphics.
Vibrant, sexy and very much of the moment, Pop Art reflected a fascination with the iconic status of 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.
Bringing together over 70 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.
Inspired by commercial graphics and popular culture, the movement generated an innovative and prolific culture of printmaking.
