Actor Alan Cumming presents a quick fire guide to Pop Art

From the streets of Manhattan Alan Cumming whips through the history of Pop Art in America and Britain, from Andy Warhol's soup cans to Peter Blake's blue jeans.

Unlock Art is Tate's new short film series, offering a witty inside track on the world of art. Alan Cumming joins forces with new Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi, Frank Skinner and other celebrity art fans to introduce some of the big ideas that have shaped art history. A new film is released each month, with topics ranging from the history of the nude and the nature of the art market, to surrealism and Pop art. The topic of the last of the eight films in the series will be put to an online public vote.

Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. Le Méridien Unlock Artmicrosite:
