Pop Art: Now and Then

About

Explore the relationships and connections between the Pop Art of the 1960s and contemporary art today.

The third Pop exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery features outstanding contemporary artists like David Mach, Takashi Murakami and Gavin Turk amongst familiar Pop Artists, Roy Lichenstein, Patrick Caulfield, Andy Warhol and many more.

The range and scale of art work on show makes this one of the best Pop themed exhibition at Wolverhampton yet.

Early examples of Pop Art include the big and bold 'Purist Painting with Bottles', by Lichenstein, said to be one of his own favourite works, and the imposing 'Tandoori Restaurant' by Patrick Caulfield, both from Wolverhampton's very own collection.

Contemporary artists provide a fine sample of painting and sculpture including the painting of a fantasy interior, 'Jackie Onassis' by Dexter Dalwood; and intricate prints of objects that have changed sizes, wine glasses which appear as big as a filing cabinets in the series 'History' by Michael Craig Martin.
