There's still time to discover the man who transformed the modern art world. Transmitting Andy Warhol at Tate Liverpool brings together more than 100 artworks from one of the most influential, controversial and notorious artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition provides a new insight into the breadth of Warhol’s artistic processes, his philosophies, as well as the social, political and aesthetic implications of his ground-breaking practice.
It was Warhol’s democratic belief that ‘art should be for everyone’. Transmitting Andy Warhol explores how the artist embraced the mass mediums of his time - publishing, film, music, and broadcast to transmit his ideas and imagery to as many people as possible. In doing so, Warhol radically re-defined access to culture and art, challenging traditional notions of high and low culture, private and mass experience.
In his desire to make art public, Warhol’s practice spanned the worlds of art, media, music, fashion and celebrity. Exhibition highlights include the Marilyn Diptych 1962, Dance Diagram 1962 and Do-it-Yourself 1962 paintings. These are being shown alongside Warhol’s television commercials, fashion illustrations for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, concert posters, his TV show and a dazzling display of his trailblazing celebrity magazine Interview. You'll also get chance to see much loved works Three Brillo Soap Pad Boxes 1964/68 and Campbell’s Soup I 1968.
But hurry, the exhibition ends 8 February 2015.
