A solo exhibition of Richard Hamilton's work, part of a programme at Institut Valencia d'Art Modern (IVAM) that focuses on key research around their collection, is now open until 26 February 2017.
The exhibition is organised under four themes. 'Objects' investigates Hamilton's exploration of industrial design through works such as Toaster (1967) and The Critic Laughs (1968). 'People' brings together Hamilton's appropriation of images of iconic figures, from news, films and music, which gave rise to works such as I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas (1967-71), Swingeing London (1969-1972), The Citizen (1985) and The Apprentice Boy (1987). 'Interiors' and 'Self-portraits' display works dating from 1964 to 1990 in which Hamilton incorporates new media and new technologies, such as Interior (1964-1965), which is made up of fragments sourced from magazines and Palindrome (1974) which was created using lenticular laminated three-dimensional printing. The exhibition also includes the 1969 film, Richard Hamilton. Documentary, directed by Scott James.
