Lichtenstein study day now online

Footage from the recent collaborative study day organised by The Open University with Tate Modern is now available on the Open Arts Archive.

This study day explored issues raised by a major Roy Lichtenstein retrospective at Tate Modern. His extraordinary body of work was the springboard for a critical exploration of ideas around the meaning of pop in the US and UK and its legacy for contemporary art and culture. Curators, academics and artists contributed to the debates.

Speakers include: Hal Foster, art critic and historian, Iria Candela, Curator, Lichtenstein: A Retrospective, Tate Modern, David Mellor, University of Sussex, Leon Wainwright, The Open University and Lisa Tickner, The Courtauld Institute of Art.
