Post Pop: East Meets West

  • 26 November 2014 — 23 February 2015 *on now

Post Pop: East Meets West is the first comprehensive exhibition examining why Pop Art, of all the twentieth century’s movements, has had such a powerful influence over artists from world regions that had or still have very different and sometimes opposing ideologies.

Widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the last century, Pop Art exploits identifiable imagery from mass media and everyday life to reflect on the nature in the world in which we live. The exhibition brings together some 250 works by over 60 artists from America, China, the Former Soviet Union and the UK, and will take over the entire Saatchi Gallery. Post Pop: East Meets West examines the relationship between western Pop Art and its lesser-known eastern counterparts including “Sots Art” in the Soviet Union and “Political-Pop” or “Cynical Realism”, which has flourished in China since the turn of the twenty-first century.

Gallery Talk - The Long March of Pop

  • 4 February 2015 From 6:45pm

To coincide with the current exhibition, Post Pop: East Meets West at the Saatchi Gallery, Thomas Crow, author of the new book ‘The Long March of Pop’ will be ‘in conversation’ with Richard Cork, award-winning art critic, historian, broadcaster and curator.

Thomas Crow’s paradigm-changing book challenges existing narratives about the rise of Pop Art by situating it within larger cultural tides which cover art, music and design. Crow will present an illustrated introduction to his book followed by a discussion with Richard Cork on the rise and continued legacy of Pop Art.

Thomas Crow is the Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Formerly Director of the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, his books include The Rise of the Sixties: American and European Art in the Era of Dissent

Richard Cork is an award-winning art critic, historian, broadcaster and curator. He has written major books on Vorticism, Art Beyond The Gallery, David Bomberg, A Bitter Truth: Avant-Garde Art and the Great War, and The Healing Presence of Art. Four volumes of his critical writings on modern art were published by Yale in 2003.
