To mark the re-opening of the Hatton Gallery, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Professor Anne Massey and I, with the gallery’s curator Rob Airey, are selecting an exhibition, Pioneers of Pop, which makes strong links between the Independent Group and other pop pioneers during Richard Hamilton’s time as artist, teacher and exhibition designer in Newcastle upon Tyne, 1953-1966, from the Coronation to England’s victory in the World Cup.

A full film and education programme will accompany the exhibition. More details and of the private view will follow.
