I saw The American Dream pop to the present print exhibition at the British Museum and I highly recommend a visit especially if you are interested in print. This exhibition explores the last 60 years of American history through the printed output of great artists responding to the changing world around them. The exhibition is visually and historically dense with intelligent art. I picked up postcards of two of my favourite prints from the exhibition.
