The most famous of the eight artists at the Pop My Cherry exhibit are probably Robert Indiana, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murikami, and David LaChapelle. However, all eight of the works below are being shown at the exhibit in Geneva, Switzerland.

Extracts from the description of the exhibit follows in double quotation marks:

"Patricia Low and Jason Cori are pleased to announce the first exhibition in the new Geneva location.

For the grand opening of Patricia Low Contemporary Geneva, the aptly titled Pop My Cherry debuts the gallery's expansion space with brazen attitude, decadence, and sex appeal, setting the standard for its exhibition program of the most sought after artists on the contemporary international and secondary market scenes.

Curated by Fabienne Levy and Patricia Low, Pop My Cherry features celebrated works by John Armleder, Nicola Bolla, Sylvie Fleury, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, David LaChapelle, Vik Muniz, Takashi Murakami, Claes Oldenburg, Anselm Reyle, Pipilotti Rist, Borek Sipek and Gavin Turk, proffering the shameless allure of pop's mesmerizing spectacle....

Also included at the gallery and below are pictures by Paula Hayes and Lauren Beck.
