The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop

Level 3

Tate Modern tells a global story of pop art, revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon. From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement.

Themes such as politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk are explored across a variety of media ranging from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.

The exhibition reveals how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest – a language that is more relevant today than ever.
