Pop Art DesignA comprehensive survey of the Pop Art movement bringing together around 200 works by over 70 artists and designers, Pop Art Design explores the intensely productive exchange of ideas between the worlds of art and design that occurred from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s. The Barbican exhibition featuring works by leading Pop Art exponents such as Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, Claes Oldenburg and Roy Lichtenstein with a particular focus on the contribution of British artists and designers to Pop. Highlights include Studio 65's Leonardo sofa which has rarely been exhibited since it was first produced in 1969; The Bishop of Kuban by Eduardo Paolozzi; and Richard Hamilton's iconic The Gold Guggenheim, one of six reliefs he produced in different finishes between 1965 and 1966 based on Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum in New York.
