Lichtenstein's 'Whaam!'

You may or may not be pleased by the revelation that 21 Feb has no marked significance, at least, not in that great and silly almanac of ‘specialist days’ that America loves so. But having scrutinised it with critical cultural eyes, TW London has compiled a short-list of reasons it can still be the special-est (if not most specialist) day of all…


Lichtenstein: A Retrospective, Tate Modern, 21 Feb – 27 May (pictured)
Following an advance unveiling yesterday, the Tate Mod’s dotty new comic-book compilation of art by American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s most famous paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages. And ‘Whaam!’ bam, thank you to the Tate Mod for doing that. Details and tickets here.


The Invisible Dot presents… The Pin and Jamie Demetriou, Invisible Dot King’s Cross, 21 Feb
Proving itself beautifully in line with TID’s usual high standards, id show #151 hosts backwards-in-time sketch hoopla c/o ex Cambridge Footlights-ists The Pin, and promise-showing character comic Jamie Demetriou. Details and tickets here.
