Transmitting Andy Warhol
Transmitting Andy Warhol 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.
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, and private and mass experience.
Exhibition highlights include the Marilyn Diptych 1962, Dance Diagram 1962 and Do-it-Yourself 1962 paintings. These will be 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.
Transmitting Andy Warhol is exhibited from 7th of November 2014 to 8th of February 2015 at Tate Liverpool.
