Tate Modern presents the first retrospective to encompass the full scope of Hamilton’s work
This is a highly personal exhibition by one of Britain’s most influential artists. The exhibition displays his designs from the 1950s to his final paintings of 2011, exploring his relationship to design, painting, photography and television, as well as his engagement and collaborations with other artists.
The main style of this exhibition shows his role in the birth of ‘pop art’ and his groundbreaking installation ‘Fun House’, which combines images from movie-posters, magazines and art history.
Other works include the life-long series of Polaroid portraits taken by other artists, such as Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, the iconic series of Mick Crosby (Swingeing London 67 1968-9) as well as images of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Bing Crosby.
A part of this exhibition explores his interest in interiors, Hamilton’s designs are represented by his depictions of everything from the Guggenheim Museum in New York to a classic Braun toaster.
