The Real Thing – Pop Art and Minimalism – at The Scottish Gallery of Modern Art brings together works of Minimalism and Pop Art, featuring works by Warhol, Hockney, Flavin and Paolozzi from The National Galleries permanent collection.
Pop Art, a movement of the 1950s to the 1970s primarily based in Britain and the United States, used imagery from popular culture such as mass media, commercial design and advertising
Minimalism, which originated in the US from the 1960s onwards, was partly a reaction against the flamboyance of Pop Art and is simple, non-representational and ordered. Working mostly in sculpture, minimalist artists used modern materials to make geometric objects seeking to make work that was exactly what it was and nothing more; with minimalist art, what you see is what you get.
