For one week from Monday 24th August 2015 BBC Four Goes Pop, a week long celebration of Pop Art movement and its influence of the art world through season of special programmes on BBC Four, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and BBC 6 Music.
Programmes on BBC Four include a documentary presented by writer and art critic Alastair Sooke, who champions Pop Art as one of the most significant – and influential – art movements of the 20th century; Steven Smith seeks to get closer to Andy Warhol, the man and artist, by experiencing a day in the life of the Pop Art superstar; whilst Peter Blake and Derek Boshier provide insight into their working practices in What Do Artists Do All Day?
Cassian Harrison – BBC Four Channel Editor said: “Pop Art remains one of the striking and dynamic cultural movements of the 20th Century. It is the moment when high art and mass-production collided for the first time; reshaping our visual landscape and launching a whole new generation of art ‘stars’. BBC Four is delighted to go Pop in celebration of their fabulous maverick creativity.”
All four idents created for the pop art season are part of the regular package of idents used on BBC Four.
