Drawing from the V&A's outstanding collection of Pop Art graphics, this is the V&A's first exhibition of Pop Art prints. Bringing together over seventy works, 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.
The work of over 30 artists are features in the exhibition; amongst the most iconic are Andy Warhol, Allen Jones, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Patrick Caulfield, Richard Hamilton, Gavin Turk and Julian Opie.
Famous for Fifteen Seconds
In 1968, Andy Warhol predicted that, in the future, everyone
would be famous for 15 minutes.
Inspired by this idea The Cheltenham invited the Wilson
Collective and visitors to Pop Art in Print to create their own 15 second clip
in partnership with Still Moving Media.
If you want to create your own 15 seconds of fame, why not
join us at The Wilson on 6th April, 5.30 – 7.15. Come along with an
idea or just improvise something on the night, and Still Moving Media will be
ready to roll. Alternatively leave your own 15 second clip at #15secondsoffame
