The Rock 'n Roll Era: Pop Art and the Swinging Sixties Valerie Woodgate Wednesday 01 May 2019

Pop Art is a realistic brightly coloured response to the modern world of consumerism, youth culture and the mass media in Britain and the USA.  Pop artists were fascinated by their own modern era, which included the post war world of advertising, Hollywood films, pop music, comics and the culture of celebrity.  Some of the above topics will be covered in this lecture.

Valerie Woodgate is a lecturer at Tate Britain, Tate Modern and also at other London galleries.  She is a former member of the teaching team at Dulwich Picture Gallery and lectures and runs courses at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester.  Valerie is also a scriptwriter for the Living Painter Trust.
