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.
