POP! Art in a Changing Britain

Pallant House Gallery, Chichester

– 7 May 2018



“Pop! Art in a Changing Britain” is one of the current exhibitions on show at the Pallant House Gallery with paintings, sculptures, and art prints from its own extensive collection of British pop art of the 1950s and 1960s.


The years following the Second World War are seen as the beginning of the marked influence wielded by the media and advertising on culture and politics. Artists from this time confronted their audience by addressing perspectives on consumer-oriented society using unconventional materials, techniques, and media from popular culture such as advertising, comics, and music. Amongst the works shown in Chichester are Richard Hamilton’s “Swingeing London” from 1968, Jann Haworth’s “Cowboy” dating from 1964 and Eduardo Paolozzi’s “As Is When” from 1965.

To accompany the exhibition, the curators have put together a publication focusing on the complex and active movement of British pop art – illustrated by the wide-ranging works of its own vast collection. The book combines the major principles and attitudes and historical backgrounds to the era, pop art members, society, and the development of the collection in Chichester. It is available during the exhibition from the Pallant bookshop priced at 29.95 British pounds.
