Was Pop Art a British and American phenomenon?
In conjunction with the exhibition POP EUROPE! this symposium reviews the idea of there being a Pop beyond Britain and America, addressing the issues concerning the geographical confinement of Pop Art. How did pop culture manifest itself artistically in Europe? Were there specific cultural parameters that enabled Pop to ferment? Exploring the relationship between Pop in Britain, America and Europe, the day aims to re-evaluate the limitations and boundaries.
We invite proposals for 20 minute papers that explore the theme of Pop Art in Europe. Please send abstracts (no longer than 300 words) accompanied by a short biography to Connie Wan at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 3 October 2014. Submission from postgraduate students and researchers working within art history and related disciplines are encouraged.
