Op + Pop

6 February – 19 June 2016

The influence of two major twentieth-century art movements on New Zealand art.

Prepare to be dazzled as we take a look at the continued influence of two major international twentieth-century art movements—Op Art and Pop Art—on New Zealand art. Op, born in Britain in the early 1960s, and Pop, which started in the United States in the late 1950s, opened up dynamic new possibilities for making art.
