From Saturday, September 23 2017 to Sunday, December 10 2017
Considered to be one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century alongside Ai Weiwei and Anselm Kiefer, Jasper Johns has dominated the contemporary American art scene since his arrival in New York in the 1950s.
He remains particularly renowned for his painting of the American flag produced in 1958.
His use of iconography and his appropriation of objects and symbols raises questions about objects, that while not necessarily in everyday use are at least very familiar.
The exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts brings together drawings, paintings, sculptures and posters and will retrace the different stages of his career.
From Saturday 23 September to Sunday 10 December 2017 :
