The World Goes Pop at the Tate Modern

The World Goes Pop is an exciting exhibition that opens up Pop Art to a wider range of voices than the standard Western male – with artists from all over the world and lots of female contributors – but not just sandwiched in in the usual token way to comment only on diversity issues. It’s a refreshing and eye opening show that made me realise how narrow a view we are often presented with in art, and actually gave me hope that curators might be getting with the program: not only because they should, but because it makes for a more interesting viewing. The works were beautiful, funny & sad, and there was lots to digest; even though they mostly derive from the sixties and seventies, they still felt extremely relevant and modern. It’s on until 24th January 2016, and I highly recommend it.
