People who have saved this event:


Pop art exploded onto the cultural scene in the early 1960s as a new generation of artists rebelled against ‘high art’ to embrace the world of advertising, film stars, pop music and consumerism.


This summer Pop to popism takes over the Gallery with more than 200 works exploring the origins of pop art, its heady high period and its enduring legacy both in Australia and abroad.

See masterpieces such as Roy Lichtenstein’s first comic-style painting Look Mickey, Andy Warhol’s Triple Elvis and David Hockney’s Portrait of an artist. For the first time, Australian artists – including Martin Sharp, Howard Arkley, Brett Whiteley and Maria Kozic – are showcased with their international peers.

Featuring works from over 45 lenders worldwide – including the Andy Warhol Museum, Tate and Museum of Modern Art – Pop to popism is part of the Sydney International Art Series, and is exclusive to Sydney.
