From dada to Gaga and beyond, How Art Made Pop examines the intertwined histories of pop music and the visual arts from the late 1950s to the present day. In particular, this remarkable and definitive study explores in exhaustive detail the exhilarating exchange between the art schools and the pop stars that they nurtured (or, occasionally, expelled). Through a writhing, hedonistic hurly burly of numerous artists and musicians including Marcel Duchamp, the Beatles, Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol, the Velvet Underground, Gilbert & George, Kraftwerk, David Bowie, Richard Hamilton, Roxy Music, Patti Smith, Sex Pistols, Talking Heads, Factory Records, Jean-Michel Basquiat, the KLF and Jay Z amongst others How Art Made Pop encompasses the worldwide history of art school rock, and brings the story up to date by contextualizing the practices of the many contemporary visual artists and artist-musicians still dazzled by pop's vital spark.
