Pop art emerged in late 1950s and early 1960s and was one of the most liberating moments in the history of art. Pop art brought an end to the division between “high” & “low” culture. For the Pop Art, any image was recyclable and every object could become an art. Its true objective was to offer the art lovers a new interpretation of the image in contemporary culture.
The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza presents ” Pop Art Myths”, the first exhibition on this subject in Madrid since Pop Art at the Museo Reina Sofía in 1992. More than 100 works are exhibited from Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Peter Blake , Mimmo Rotella, Eqipo Crónica among many others.
