London visitors behold, a “mighty” retrospective runs through May 26th
Regarded as one of the pioneers of Pop Art, Richard Hamilton spent six decades forging new ground in a variety of media spanning painting to photography. The Tate Modern has on display through May 26 the most comprehensive collection of the full scope of his work to date, with the ultra-significant installation, Funhouse, serving as the centerpiece.
Hamilton used his art to address celebrity worship, with a range of images of figures like Mick Jagger and Marilyn Monroe included in the show, as well as pieces devoted to popular culture moments from the Kent State shooting to the IRA dirty protests. The retrospective runs through May 26. For more information visit the museum website.
