Kiki Kogelnik: Works from 1962-68

When Kogelnik moved to New York in 1961, she fell in with Pop’s heavy hitters – Lichtenstein, Warhol, Oldenberg. Unsurprisingly, this milieu impacted her own art, especially her use of colour. But she did not share Pop’s fascination with commercialism and always denied belonging to that club. Perhaps in vain – her native Austria celebrates her as a pop artist and the Tate’s big 2015 Pop survey included her work.
