Newcastle University’s Hatton Gallery, which has strong ties to the Pop Art movement, will once again bring works by Pop Art legends to the region with its Print Goes Pop exhibition which will run from 25 September 2021 – 29 January 2022.

Print Goes Pop will explore artists’ use of the screen-print technique during the Pop era and beyond. It will showcase collection works by artists including Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi alongside important loans from national collections, including seven works from Warhol’s iconic Marilyn series, and extraordinary lesser-known prints by artists including Parviz Tanavoli.

Artists began using screenprinting, a stencil-based printmaking method, in the 1930s, but it became particularly popular with the rise of Pop Art. During the 1960s, ‘Pop’ artists such as Richard Hamilton, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein embraced the technique to make vibrant and iconic large-scale prints using imagery from popular culture. Hatton Gallery's exhibition will also explore how the technique of screenprinting has been used in innovative ways by leading artists that weren’t considered ‘Pop’ artists, such as Gillian Ayres and Bridget Riley.

Some of the best-known works in the exhibition are Richard Hamilton’s My Marilyn, which will be shown alongside several works from Andy Warhol’s Marilyn series, and Roy Lichtenstein’s Brushstrokes.

The exhibition is curated by Hatton Gallery, and combines loans from the Arts Council Collection, Tate and the V&A with rarely seen works from the Hatton Gallery and Laing Art Gallery collections.
