Pop Art (Will Eat Itself)

The curator and art critic Lawrence Alloway coined the term, Pop Art in the 1950s. Alloway claimed that Pop Art was the “the art of popular culture”, but he was wrong. In actuality, Pop Art is the art about popular culture! Since its post-war burgeoning, Pop Art has expanded into all aspects of modern culture; to such a point that it cannot help but mirror itself and consumes itself and in itself a statement on our modern obsession with resampling and recursive cultural contemplation. 

This talk explores the rabbit-holes of queasy quasi-quantum Pop, through seminal works and key artists from the 1950s to the present day.
