Meet-Up: Roy Lichtenstein ‘A Retrospective’ - Tate 27.03.13

When was the last time you went to a pop-art exhibition? Join us and a load of gallery lovers at the new Roy Lichtenstein exhibition at the Tate Modern: A Retrospective.

The exhibition looks at the work of one of the great American artists in the twentieth century. A Retrospective is the first full-scale retrospective of this important artist in over twenty years. Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this exhibition brings together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures and reassesses his enduring legacy. Lichtenstein is renowned for his works based on comic strips and advertising imagery, coloured with his signature hand-painted Benday dots. The exhibition showcases such key paintings as Look Mickey 1961 lent from the National Gallery Art, Washington and his monumental Artist’s Studio series of 1973–4. Other noteworthy highlights include Whaam! 1963 – a signature work in Tate’s collection – and Drowning Girl 1963 on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Join us at 6pm outside the front entrance. Or join our ‘Meet-up’ group to keep up to date with what’s going on in the future.
