Over the next few weeks, the gallery will provide an insight into Hamilton’s creative process and his breadth of visual experimentation through a weekly In Focus series exploring the core themes and subjects that underpinned his work for over 60 years. They begin with Defining Pop, which delves into Hamilton’s relationship to pop art, a term he first coined in the mid-1950s. This includes a screening of a documentary made in 1991 with Richard Hamilton and his former student, the musician Bryan Ferry.
The In Focus series will comprise further film content, a closer look at Michael Bracewell’s new book Modern World: The Art of Richard Hamilton, and the launch of the first episode of our new podcast series. Spotlighted themes include artworks that address political subjects, explore interiors and portraiture and Hamilton’s fusion of art and technology.
