Richard Hamilton, Politics and Art in the 1980s @Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium Thursday 27th February 2014,6.30pm – 8.00pm £15, concessions available.
Taking the Richard Hamilton exhibition at Tate Modern as a point of departure, this event considers explicitly political works addressing Vietnam, the IRA ‘dirty protests’, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. It also asks how Hamilton chose and transformed his source material and the contexts for his work.
