One of the most influential British artists of the 20th century, Richard Hamilton(1922–2011) is widely regarded as a founding figure of pop art, who continued to experiment and innovate over a career of 60 years. Tate Modern presents the first retrospective to encompass the full scope of Hamilton’s work, from his early exhibition designs of the 1950s to his final paintings of 2011. This exhibition explores his relationship to design, painting, photography and television, as well as his engagement and collaborations with other artists.

Hamilton is best known for his pivotal role in the birth of pop art, including the groundbreaking installation Fun House 1956. A centrepiece of the exhibition, this immersive room combines images from movie-posters, magazines and art history, and will be shown alongside a print of the era-defining Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?. The depiction of Mick Jagger in the iconic series Swingeing London 67 1968–9, as well as images of other celebrities such as Bing Crosby and Marilyn Monroe, will show Hamilton’s continued interest in popular culture. Wider contemporary issues and political subjects are also addressed in his work, including the Kent State shootings and the IRA ‘dirty protests’, as well as figures like Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair in such works as Treatment Room 1984 and Shock and Awe 2010. Hamilton’s interest in interiors, architecture and design is represented by his depictions of everything from the Guggenheim Museum in New York to a classic Braun toaster.

Richard Hamilton is curated by Mark Godfrey, Curator of International Art, Tate Modern, Paul Schimmel and Vicente Todolí with Hannah Dewar, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern.

Exhibition organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Tate Modern.

‘From Love to Bingo’, la vita in 873 immagini: dall’archivio Getty Images

Tra famiglia e bambini, business, energia e salute, natura, ufficio, cibo e medicina e le collezioni in primo piano di digital vision, comstock images, photodisc e stockbyte, Entertainment e Royalty-free ad alta risoluzione, Famiglie reali e Sport, foto editoriali, vettoriali, videoclip e licenze per musica stock raccolte nelle macro sezioni immagini, filmati, musica e risorse anche per iPad e iPhoneGetty Images ha un archivio di più di 38 milioni di foto. Quanto basta per raccontare una vita intera.

La Getty Images, Inc. è un’agenzia fotografica con sede a Seattle, negli Stati Uniti. È leader nella fornitura di immagini per il commercio ed i consumatori con un database di 70 milioni di immagini e illustrazioni e più di 50.000 ore di filmati. Si focalizza su 3 settori: creativi professionali, i media (stampa e pubblicazioni in rete) e i dipartimenti di comunicazioni per altre attività imprenditoriali.

Nasce nel 1993 da Mark Getty e Jonathan Klein.

Nel febbraio 2008 è stato annunciato che la società sta per essere acquistata da Hellman & Friedman in una transizione valutata in 2,5 miliardi di dollari.

Nel 2006 Getty acquista iStockphoto, il primo fornitore on-line di fotografie royalty-free.

Circa sei mesi fa, un minuzioso ed estenuante lavoro di ricerca su più di 5 mila fotografie ha prodotto il film di 1 minuto che la AlmapBBDO ha creato per la Getty Images, il più grande database e distributore di immagini e visual contents al mondo. Il film ‘From Love to Bingo’ è una sorprendente raccolta di 873 immagini, 15 al secondo, montate a una velocità tale da trasformare la sequenza in un video capace di raccontare una bellissima storia senza testo. Uno splendido spot per qualcuno, un meraviglioso Ad in snapshots sulla vita, lo ha definito qualcun altro. Tutte le foto, senza alcuna eccezione, provengono dagli archivi Getty Images. Copywriter Sophie Schoenburg e art director Marcos Kotlhar, il film è stato diretto da Cisma, via Paranoid BR, insieme a Marcos Kotlhar,  art director anche in agenzia.
