Tracy Cooper-Lavery, director, gallery and visual arts, at HOTA, says: “Pop Masters: Art from the Mugrabi Collection celebrates the history of Pop Art, whilst examining its influence on art and artists today. We wanted to explore the intersections in the lives, ideas and practices of this significant group of artists."
