Essentials: Pop presents iconic Pop films from the 1950s and 60s alongside work that preceded the Pop Art movement and work from its many legacies. Drawing on the proliferation of brand-name products, logos, billboards, comic books, popular press, advertising, television and Hollywood films, these artists create radical new perspectives on mass production and popular culture. Including work by Peter Roehr, William Klein and Peter Whitehead. more
