A new exciting exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is taking place at the Dick Institute, Kilmarnock – the only venue north of the border to be hosting the event.
Pop Art in Print brings together over 70 works from the outstanding collection of Pop graphics belonging to London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. Prints are central to the story of Pop Art, and this exhibition presents a comprehensive view of artists working in this style between the 1960s and the early 2000s, including Andy Warhol, Patrick Caul eld, Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, David Hockney, Allen Jones, Roy Lichtenstein and Ed Ruscha. Many of the most iconic works of the genre are included here alongside printed work in other media such as textiles, wallpaper and music industry posters.
Pop Art in Print is free to visit and runs until Saturday, April 28 at the Dick Institute’s Main Gallery, which is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 6pm, Thursdays from 1pm to 8pm and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.
