Roy Lichtenstein: Pop Remix, QUT Art Museum, June 29
We got down to the QUT Art Museum on Friday night for the opening of an artist's exhibition whose name has is synonymous with the Pop Art movement. Roy Lichtenstein's works stand alongside those of his contemporaries (Andy Warhol, anyone?) as icons of American art in the '60s and '70s. You know him for his comic strip and ben-day dot imagery which has become an instantly recognisable graphic aesthetic.
This exhibition is drawn exclusively from the National Gallery of Australia's Kenneth Tyler Print Collection and includes newly restored and digitised, rare, candid photography and film components that reveal a fascinating insight into Lichtenstein's method. They capture a number of moments in his collaborative working methods and in the creation of a number of his best known printed series. The exhibition runs from Friday 30 June - Sunday 36 August (gallery closed Mondays).
