Pop Art Design exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery

From Tuesday 22nd October, the Barbican Art Gallery will open with one of the first comprehensive exhibitions to explore the origins, motives and methods of Pop Art Design. Brash, colourful and playful, Pop Art was a movement that signalled a radical change of direction in the postwar period. The movement shaped a new sense of cultural identity, with a focus on celebrity, mass production and the expanding industries of advertising, television, radio and print media.

The exhibition also features objects from Charles and Ray Eames, Allen Jones and Ettore Sottsass, interspersed with posters, magazines, album sleeves and film clips.

Bridget Riley at The White Room Gallery

The White Room Gallery in Bath is proud to present a selection of prints by renowned British artist, Bridget Riley. During the 1960s, Riley was a key member of the Op Art movement, helping to propel the scene to audiences internationally.

Riley's visually dynamic work explores how "a viewer’s eye can travel over the surface in a way parallel to the way it moves over nature. It should feel caressed and soothed, experience frictions and ruptures, glide and drift.”

The exhibition runs from the 4 to 31 October. For further information including opening times, please visit: www.thewhiteroomgallery.com.

Based in Amy’s home borough of Camden, the exhibition will run from September 12th - 6th October 2013. ‘For You I Was A Flame’ follows on from the hugely successful ‘Family Portrait’ exhibition held at the London Jewish Museum, with both exhibitions created in close collaboration with Amy’s family and the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
