Jini's Pick of the Week - "Pop Life" exhibition

There's a brand new exhibition at the Tate Modern, that's right up my alley and hence yours too, savvy Foundtrack blog reader.

Here's the fancy words from the press release to let you know what it's all about:

"Pop Life: Art in a Material World proposes a re-reading of one of the major legacies of Pop Art. The exhibition takes Andy Warhol’s notorious provocation that ‘good business is the best art’ as a starting point in reconsidering the legacy of Pop Art and the influence of the movement’s chief protagonist. Pop Life: Art in a Material World looks ahead to the various ways that artists since the 1980s have engaged with mass media and cultivated artistic personas creating their own signature 'brands'. Among the artists represented are Tracey Emin, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince."

Just to inject some video goodness into this little art piece, here's an intro from exhibition curator, Alison Gingeras:

What do you mean you can't afford to come to London? Not one to hold that against you, here's what you can expect to see:

The exhibition runs until 17th Jan 2010 at the Tate Modern, London.
