The Tate Modern is a modern art gallery located in London. It is Britain's national gallery of international modern art. I am unsure how a modern art gallery can showcase material that is soon to be 50 years old and hardly modern, but I suppose it has more to do with the art style than actual age.
Featuring the Doll Festival - the iconic 1966-masterpiece by Shinohara Ushio, the Tate Modern is hosting a retrospective showing on Pop Art…

The exhibition looks to teach how Pop Art was far more than a mere poke in the jowls of U.S. commercialism...
... and does so by highlighting artwork from differing countries (and artists) with examples of Pop Art that utilized such in-the-news topics as politics, the body, public protest and so much more.
The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop exhibition describes Pop Art as a subversive way to protest.
I suppose... certainly one could protest without tear gas and earn a few shekels to boot.
|The Doll Festival, by Shinohara Ushio... hmm... those Japanese all do look the same.|
Pretty cheeky and quite possibly a nod to all the LSD being dropped at the time, but whatever… I'll allow it, because it's such a witty statement!
I remember the 1960s, but I suppose it's more of a commentary of being there versus BEING there.
Although I did most of my comic book back issue purchasing in the 1970s and 1980s, the books I purchased were those from the 1960s... and was where I learned a bit about Pop Art... as comic books are a form of that art movement.
