Alan Cumming on Pop Art | Unlock Art



Actor Alan Cumming presents a quick fire guide to Pop Art

From the streets of Manhattan Alan Cumming whips through the history of Pop Art in America and Britain, from Andy Warhol’s soup cans to Peter Blake’s blue jeans.

Unlock Art is Tate’s new short film series, offering a witty inside track on the world of art. Alan Cumming joins forces with new Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi, Frank Skinner and other celebrity art fans to introduce some of the big ideas that have shaped art history. A new film is released each month, with topics ranging from the history of the nude and the nature of the art market, to surrealism and Pop art. The topic of the last of the eight films in the series will be put to an online public vote.

Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. Le Méridien Unlock Artmicrosite:

  1. When was that alcoholic/absinthe consumer born? Terrible to realize that but I have actually know for a fact Tatcher definitely not Catherine from another song or poem because first it's written on paper and then the guy goes into their house studio and writes down the music but I have actually known in real life 10 years ago a margarita who drank Manson's mansynyh irl then it turns out the vomit into the bathroom and I am sure that it would not happen from real whiskey maybe in the video to whiskey in the jar they didn't have whiskey but they have some sort of cheap Cherry wine and Valium kind of like in that Swedish film called damn boring åmal so nothing to do in here like what do you want to do – do you want to lose your shell which is what Swedish🍬🍦🍭🍩🍪🍶🍽🇸🇪🍬💞🍶🍪🍩🍭🍦☀️🛍🎨🐨 people call their short jackets on the highway it's funny what people hang on their walls sometimes and how completely uncreative some sweets are especially the ones from the self who celebrate the May festival with the flowers and everything I think that they derive from a different ethnic group however not to diminish of course not to diminish mr. California☀️🛍🌸❤️🌷🍪🕊💖❤️🏝👘🎨💞🍬🍶🍀🌏🐬🐠Mr. Andersen is the brightest star of all United States even plays in his own films it's quite incredible that directors of creative works are even playing in their own works it's so magical I think that I will visit in the spring time my biggest Dream in the world is to food at the Museum of the real ghost because anyone else who has the similar ghastly name can talk and talk and talk and it will never have the same value regardless of what they said because you have to be born on the same day as Data Von Tease and you have to be over 40 like my doppelgänger
