Lichtenstein and the Wider Worlds of British Pop

The next big event involving the Open Arts Archive is a Tate-Open University study day this Saturday 16 March.

The event takes place 10:30am – 5:30pm in the Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium.

This study day explores issues raised by a major Roy Lichtenstein retrospective at Tate Modern. His extraordinary body of work is 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 will contribute 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. Question and answer sessions will be chaired by Gill Perry, The Open University and Marko Daniel, Tate.

This event is related to the exhibition Lichtenstein: A Retrospective

This is the latest in a series of collaborative study days organised by The Open University with Tate Modern. Previous study days can be viewed on the Open Arts Archive.
