Pop Art Is. . . (Adam McEwen)
This poster featuring Untitled (Kate) (2007) by Adam McEwen was produced in 2007, in conjunction with Pop Art Is. . . , a group exhibition at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London.
Pop art erased the boundaries between high and low culture to produce many of the twentieth century’s iconic images. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of Richard Hamilton’s visionary definition of the movement, this exhibition considered the ways in which artists, past and present, respond to constantly changing ideas about what Pop art is.
Following a stint writing obituaries for the Daily Telegraph in London, McEwen began producing obituaries of living subjects—such as Bill Clinton, Jeff Koons, and Kate Moss—highlighting the blurred line between history and fiction.
