The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop, opens at the Tate Modern. The exhibition covers the full breadth of international Pop Art from the 1960s and 70s, 'exploding' the traditional story of Pop. The show features 'colourful and exciting' works from Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East – the majority of which have never before been shown in the UK. Highlights include: Japanese pop artist Tajiri’s striking large scale sculpture Machine No.7, surrounded by works by artists Ushio Shinohara, Erro, Equipo Cronica and Evelyne Axel; a mirrored full room installation specially recreated for this exhibition by Polish pop artist Jana Zelibska; and Henri Cueco’s multi-layered sculptural work Large Protest 1969 seen in front of his painting The Red Men, bas-relief 1969, exploring the Cold War, Vietnam War and May 1968 protests in Paris. The Exhibition is at Tate Modern from 7 September 2015 - 24 January 2015.
