POP ART DESIGN
22 February - 9 June 2013
Louisiana’s large-scale spring exhibition celebrates the phenomenal Pop Art movement. Featuring many iconic masterpieces - Warhol, Lichtenstein, Hamilton, Eames, Panton and Sottsass - Pop Art Design highlights the close and inspirational collaboration between artists and designers of the period.
Pop stands out as the most influential, fascinating and easily recognizable movement of the post-war years. Young, wild, witty, bold, colourful and sexy, Pop literally exploded onto the art and design scene in the late 50s and early 60s, marking a fundamental break-through in values, motives and aesthetics.
Pop Art Design is in fact the first extensive exhibition on the interrelations between art and design of the period. Here we are presented with a more varied and exciting perspective of the Pop phenomenon, finally recognizing the central role of design in the history of the movement.
Pop Art Design is an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
