Richard Hamilton is considered one of the founding fathers of Pop Art. As well as being one of its earliest proponents, Hamilton was also one of the most critical artists of the Pop generation. By bringing together such disparate imagery as the pictures of the home, farm machinery and political protests, his work interrogated what an image meant in the 20th century and how, through dissemination and repetition, it could affect how we see the world.
It Moves Forward – The Work of Richard Hamilton draws from significant private and public collections to bring together works from over 30 years of Hamilton’s career. The exhibition demonstrates the breadth and depth of Hamilton’s uniquely searching, gritty and humorous approach to mass culture.
