These decades were an exciting period in art, when advances in printmaking techniques and the ever-increasing power of mass-media provided artists with diverse and innovative ways to communicate their art to a wider audience.

In this exhibition are works from the Gallery’s collection by renowned artists including Joe Tilson, Eduardo Paolozzi and John Cage among others, alongside works by Roy Lichtenstein on display for the first time and newly acquired works by Corita Kent.

Inspired by the title of a work by Joe Tilson in the exhibition, the phrase ‘yes yes yes yes’ evokes the democratic spirit and ethos of technical innovation shared by many of these artists and their printers, who sought to distribute ‘fine art’ imagery more broadly through methods of mechanical reproduction.
