Join art historian and curator Flavia Frigeri for a talk about how Pop Art trespassed traditional boundaries separating high from low culture

Are you an art lover and want to know more? This talk will give you all the background knowledge you need for your enjoyment and understanding, whether you are an avid gallery-goer, armchair enthusiast or curious observer.

In Pop Art Flavia Frigeri introduces you to a movement that focuses on everyday objects, from its beginnings in the post-war consumerism of America and Britain to its fascinating rise on a global scale in the 1960s. The work of well-known artists, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton and Peter Blake, is set in dialogue with that of Japanese Ushio Shinohara, Venezuelan Marisol and Argentinian Marta Minujín, among others.

This event is in collaboration with Thames & Hudson.

Biography Flavia Frigeri is an art historian and curator, and Teaching Fellow at University College, London. She co-curated the internationally acclaimed exhibition The World Goes Pop at Tate Modern in 2015. Frigeri is the author of Tate Introductions: Paul Klee and contributed to the exhibition catalogue she co-curated, The World Goes Pop.
