From Campbell’s Soup to Mickey Mouse, and from comic strips to balloon dogs, POP Power from Warhol to Koons celebrates the evolution of Pop art, a perennial movement that revels in the new and the now, the celebrity and the commodity, and art made accessible for all. This exhibition focuses on leading contemporary figures such as Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and the Japanese master of the Neo-Pop Superflat style, Takashi Murakami, creatively shown alongside the likes of seminal American Pop leaders like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Robert Indiana, to name just a few.
Organized by the Taubman Museum of Art.
