This summer Madrid hosts two important exhibitions highlighting the Pop Art movement, with a common entrance ticket for both shows.
The first exhibition Pop Art Myths, which takes place at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum from 10 June-14 Sept, traces the history of the movement and how it expanded to the US and Europe from its origins in Britain in the 1950s. The show includes over 100 works by some of Pop Art's greatest exponents such as Warhol, Hockney, Rauschenberg, Wesselmann and Lichtenstein.
The second exhibition is devoted solely to the work of British Pop artist Richard Hamilton and takes place at the Reina Sofía Museum from 27 June-13 Oct. It comprises over 250 works produced between 1949 and 2010, and the Reina Sofia describes the show as "the most comprehensive exhibition ever" dedicated to pioneering pop artist who died in 2011.
A single joint entrance ticket for €13 will give visitors access to both exhibitions, and can be bought in person at the museums or reserved online or by telephone. Visitors must confirm in advance the day and time of their visit at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum while entrance to the Reina Sofía exhibition is available at any time.
Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum: Tues-Sun 10.00-19.00.
