Lichtenstein: A Retrospective will be opening at Tate Modern early this Spring, showcasing 125 of the artist’s most renowned paintings and sculptures. With his ironical appropriation of comic book imagery, advertising, and cartoon illustration, Lichtenstein irreverently challenged the limits of how art functions within mass culture. His iconic hand-painted Benday dots and fragmented speech bubbles present a jarring confrontation between high art and American popular media. Among the featured works will be such noteworthy pieces as Look Mickey (1961) and his Artist’s Studio series (1973-4). The exhibition runs from February 21 through May 27, so book your flight and pick us up some expensive biscuits while you’re over there.
