Tate Modern – Pop Life: Art In A Material World | Video

By - March 30th, 2010

Keith Haring’s Pop Shop, Jeff Koon’s earlier and pornographic Made In Heaven, Takashi Murakami’s Akihabara Majokko Princess all have one thing in common – that you can only see them at Pop Life: Art In A Material World exhibition. Organized originally by London’s Tate Modern and co-curated by Jack Bankowsky, Alison M. Gingeras, along with Catherine Wood, the exhibit re-examine the very core definition of the Pop Art movement. Where as it was suggested by Andy Warhol that Pop Art was the mere reflection, though exaggerated, of contemporary popular culture, Tate Modern and the team of curators found the opposite to be true. That the works themselves have infiltrated, often subversively, into our daily lives. For those who can’t make a trip out to London and see the exhibition in person, In Love With has created a video recap of the exhibition featuring works from Murakami, Haring, Warhol and more. The full list of artists whose work is on display include Ashley Bickerton, Maurizio Cattelan, Tracey Emin, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Andrea Fraser, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Sarah Lucas, Edouard Manet, Takashi Murakami, Peter Nagy, Richard Prince, Pruitt & Early, David Robbins, Reena Spaulings, Elaine Sturtevant, Gavin Turk, Piotr Uklanski, Meyer Vaisman and Andy Warhol. And for those fortunate enough to visit the exhibit, it is currently on display in Germany at Hamburger Kunsthalle through May 9th.
