Following on from the success of The Lightbox’s 2011 British Pop Art exhibition, we turned to International Pop Art which featured some of the world’s most famous artists, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg.

The exhibition explored how these artists sought inspiration from subject matter such as comic books, pop music, advertising, Hollywood films and branded packaging to create dynamic new ways of making and presenting art. The emerging fashions of the 1960s, key graphic and interior designs, furniture, memorabilia and iconic posters were also featured in the display which was a celebration of this rich, colourful and influential period.
