In the first exhibition of its kind in the UK, more than 100 video clips will take over FACT's galleries, telling the story of pop videos and focusing on the recent shift in in the audience's role from passive viewer to active producer.

The Art of Pop Video is at FACT between 14 March - 26 May. Artists featured include Björk, Michael Jackson, Pet Shop Boys, Fred Astaire, Man Ray, Madonna, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga and Radiohead. Directors featured include Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Dudley Murphy, Anton Corbijn, Andy Warhol, Uwe Flade, Julien Temple, Wim Wenders and Chris Cunningham.

We'll also present a brand new music video created for acclaimed Liverpool band Outfit by a North West based director. There are just a couple of days left to submit your ideas for this video commission in partnership with Liverpool Sound City. Find out more here.

During the exhibition we're pleased to present a host of events including a series of films programmed in collaboration with Tate Liverpool inspired by The Art of Pop Video and Tate's Glam! The Performance of Style exhibition.

The activities will kick off later this month when travelling music-inspired poster exhibition Screenadelica take over the FACT Connects Space. Come along between 28 February - 3 March to try your hand at screenprinting or watch a demonstration. You can also submit your own design which could become part of the exhibition!
