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 new exhibition explores his relationship to design, painting, photography and television, as well his engagement and collaborations with other artists.

This is the first Hamilton retrospective to fully reflect the importance of his exhibition designs and installations. In collaboration with Tate, two of Hamilton’s other installations are being shown at the ICA to coincide with this retrospective. Almost six decades after the artist presented these works at the Institute’s original location in Dover Street, they will be restaged to reflect the artist’s close relationship with the ICA throughout his career.

Richard Hamilton was born in London in 1922. He studied at the Royal Academy Schools and Slade School of Art, and went on to teach at the London Central School of Arts and Crafts and the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Hamilton was also a key member of the Independent Group. He represented Britain in the 1993 Venice Biennale and his work is held in major public and private collections around the world.

理查德·漢密爾頓是英國二十世紀最有影響力的藝術家之一,他被廣泛認為是波普藝術運動的開山鼻祖,他充滿實驗性和創造性的藝術生涯持續了60年。當下泰特美術館舉辦的《理查德·漢密爾頓》大展是第一次對他各類藝術作品綜合呈現的大型回顧展覽,涵蓋了從上世紀50年代其早期的展覽設計到他2011年去世前的最新作品。此次展覽展示了他與設計、繪畫、攝影及電視之間的關係,同時也著重展示了他與其他藝術家之間的互動與合作。

此次展覽也是首次突出呈現了漢姆爾頓展覽設計和裝置作品的重要性。與泰特現代美術館合作,英國當代藝術研究所(ICA)也同時展出了漢密爾頓的兩件裝置作品,這兩件作品曾在近60年前在ICA進行展出,此次重新呈現的作品展示了藝術家與ICA之間貫穿其藝術生涯始終的緊密聯繫。

1922年,理查德·漢密爾頓生於英國倫敦,畢業於皇家美術學院和斯雷德藝術學校,曾任教于倫敦中央工藝美術學院和紐卡斯爾大學。漢密爾頓是英國文化團體“獨立小組”的重要成員。他曾經代表英國參加1993年的威尼斯藝術雙年展,其作品在全世界範圍內被公共機構和個人廣泛收藏。
