Exhibition Details

Let your eyes grow wide, your hearing sharpen and your nerves tingle as sculpture, painting, photographs, videos and prints bring your senses roaring to life. From eye-watering op art to the mind-bending, interactive installation of Luc Peire's Environment III, this exhibition fizzes with emotion.

Covering the period from the 1960s to the present day, Whizz Bang Pop includes new acquisitions alongside well-known favourites. Watch as moving images flicker, lights glow fluorescent, sculptures burst into motion, artworks lift off walls, and colours explode and retreat.
