Hi, POP

The M Contemporary Art Center will host an exhibition of the 5 greatest artists of the pop art movement from Dec. 15th, 2017 to Apr. 15th, 2018. Located on the 1st floor of the Le Meridien Seoul hotel, the exhibition will feature 160 works of art that have been handpicked to represent the best of pop art. Pop art’s subjects were often items that were common in everyday life. One of the most famous examples of pop art may be Andy Warhol’s soup cans. Visit the exhibition at M Contemporary to see how the run-of-the-mill can be transformed and elevated into high art. The artworks on exhibition have the power to transport visitors back to 1960s, to the

height of the pop art movement.
