The World Goes Pop

The Tate Modern in central London has unveiled a new exhibition on pop art, but not as you know it. From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this explosive exhibition features artwork from the 1960s and 1970s that reflect just how different artists across the world responded to the colourful movement. It was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest. Material used includes canvas, car bonnets and pinball machines.
