The work of Pauline Boty (1938-1966), a key member of the British Pop Art movement, both celebrates and critiques mass cultural experience, exploring themes of female sexuality, gender, race and politics.

This is the first public exhibition to survey her career as a whole, reinstating her at the forefront of British Pop Art.

This vibrant display of paintings, collages and ephemera from public and private collections includes some pieces that have not been exhibited for 40 years.
