This great exhibition of Richard Hamilton (London, 1922-2011), one of the pioneers of Pop Art, constitutes his most comprehensive exhibition ever made. It comprises a selection of over 250 works produced between 1949 and 2010, showing his interest in pop culture and graphic design, expressed in a wide range of media, from paintings, drawing and etchings to works created through experimentation with computer-generated images, photographs and collaborations with other artists.
The exhibition therefore offers a close look at many aspects of Hamilton’s work. Also of great interest is the presentation of various installations, such as This is Tomorrow and an Exhibit, as well as Man, Machine and Motion. In addition, Hamilton’s first installation/exhibition Growth and Form –presented in the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London in 1951– will be reconstructed for the first time for this major retrospective.
