Richard HamiltonThe first major retrospective of one of Britain's most influential 20th Century artists, following his death in 2011. Richard Hamilton's work in the 1950s, using collage and imagery from the mass media and advertising, is widely considered the foundation of pop art, exemplified by the memorably titled 'Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?' (1956), a domestic scene featuring a bodybuilder holding a lollipop and a woman with a lampshade on her head. As well as these design-focussed commentaries on modern (read mid-century) living, Hamilton's work addressed celebrity culture - his famous 'Swingeing London' (1969) shows Mick Jagger being arrested - and tough political subjects, perhaps most controversially in his diptych painting 'The Citizen' (1983) in which a Republican prisoner takes on a Christ-like appearance. In conjunction with this Tate Modern retrospective, the ICA will be showing some of Hamilton's exhibition designs.

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
