Heading from Europe and the Middle East and all the way to Latin America and Asia, this exhibition charts the rise of the art that was produced in the 1960’s and 1970’s and how the movement was captured by different cultures and countries from across the globe.

A whole range of topics will be examined in this display including: politics,domestic revolution and folk, arguing that pop art was not just about celebrating western consumer culture but also becoming an international language of protest.

In order to make this point, there will be a huge variety of material on display, showcasing the very best of pop art – including canvas, car bonnets and even pinball machines.

The exhibition will open on the 17th September and will be on display for visitors to explore until the 24th January 2016. Tickets for the exhibition are on sale now and cost £16 (with donation) and £14.50 (without donation), with concessions available. It should also be worth noting that there are No booking fee charges for tickets to this exhibition.

To find the exhibition when you enter the Tate Modern visit the Eyal Ofer Galleries on Level Three of the building.
