Delve into the true story behind the vibrant world of pop art with The World Goes Pop at Tate Modern.

The exhibition aims to tell the story of how the movement of pop art sprang up in various parts of the world, including Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe; and wasn’t confined to just one nation or set of artists.

This show is the result of a research project that left no stone unturned in its search for how different cultures both contributed and reacted to pop art. For a long time it was assumed pop art was a creation and celebration of Western commercial culture. However, evidence gathered for this project show that it was prevalent in many forms as a subversive tool for criticism and public protest.

The exhibition has brought together around 200 important works from the 1960s and the 1970, with many of them on display in the UK for the first time.
