Pop Art Design starts tomorrow at the Barbican! With over 200 works from over 70 artists and designers including Peter Blake, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Charles and Ray Eames, it's going to be a great exhibition.

"Pop artists commented on the cult of celebrity, commodity fetishism and the proliferation of media that permeated everyday life in America and the United Kingdom after the Second World War. Radically departing from all that had gone before, artists delighted in adopting the design language of advertising, television and commerce to create work that was playful but often also intentionally irreverent and provocative. In turn, designers routinely looked to Pop Art as a constant source of inspiration. Pop Art Design paints a new picture of Pop – one that recognises the central role played by design."

The exhibition runs until February 2014 so there's plenty of time to get down there and I have it on very good authority that the gallery shop is packed full with fabulous pop art style goodies.
