Andy Warhol - Exhibition at Tate Modern Art Museum
Heure et lieu
À propos de l'événement
Andy Warhol was the son of Slovakian immigrants who later on became an American icon. A shy man who became the hub of New York’s social scene. An artist who embraced consumerism, celebrity and counter culture – and changed modern art in the process, by promoting a new style called pop-art. The movement was meant as a challenge to traditions of fine art through a paraphernalia of images of mass culture and advertising or comic books.
This major retrospective is the first Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern for almost 20 years. As well as his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup cans, it includes works never seen before in the UK. Twenty-five works from his Ladies and Gentlemen series – portraits of black and Latina drag queens and trans women – are shown for the first time in 30 years. Visitors can also play with his floating Silver Clouds and experience the psychedelic multimedia environment of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
Popularly radical and radically popular, Warhol was an artist who reimagined what art could be in an age of immense social, political and technological change.
