Without a doubt, the blockbuster show of the summer is the National Gallery's controversial Pop Life: Art in a Material World. Organized by the cutting-edge Tate Gallery in London, the show examines artists who have followed in Andy Warhol's footsteps and explored the connection between shameless self-promotion, irresistible notoriety and the business of marketing and selling art. The show has already stirred up quite a hullabaloo for its restricted section (18 and over only) which features art with near pornographic content. Guaranteed to kick-start conversations. Until September 19. gallery.ca/poplife.
