The exceptional creative work of Richard Hamilton comes under scrutiny at the Tate Modern as it devotes a new exhibition to one of the founders of pop art.
An innovative figure in the art world for more than 60 years, Hamilton first made a name for himself in the 1950s and continued to work right up until 2011.
One of his first brushes with fame was when he came up with a ground breaking installation called Fun House (1956), an immersive room combining images from film posters, magazines and art history. Always keen to use the pop culture around him as inspiration for his work, expect to encounter unusual depictions of the likes of Mick Jagger, Bing Crosby and even Tony Blair. Curated by Mark Godfrey, this is the first retrospective to encompass Hamilton’s distinguished and varied work.
