New Andy Warhol exhibition opening soon
26 Aug 2014

More than 100 artworks are set to go on show at Tate Liverpool soon as part of a new exhibition called Transmitting Andy Warhol.

The show, about famed pop artist Andy Warhol (1928 to 1987), is described by Tate as the first to look into his part in setting up fresh platforms for art dissemination as well as the way he experimented with fresh ways of dealing with art reception.

It begins November 7th this year and will be in place in Liverpool until February 8th 2015.

The works on display will include Warhol's Marilyn Diptych paintings, as well as a version of Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

Art fans will have the chance to buy the book Tate Introductions: Warhol, which has been published to tie-in with the show and written by the exhibition's co-curator Stephanie Straine, who has worked on the display with Darren Pih.

The exhibition is being supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Terra Foundation for American Art.

According to Tate, it looks at the way the likes of film, broadcasting and publishing were involved in Warhol's practice.

"Transmitting Andy Warhol shows how the artist combined the conceptual processes of making, marketing, publicity and distribution within a single artwork," it says.

Details of the show follow Tate announcing that Henri Matisse: the Cut Outs, which is at Tate Modern at the moment, is set to have an uninterrupted night of opening during its last weekend on show in London.

This show, soon to appear in New York City, looks at cut-out paper pieces created by Matisse from the late 30s to the mid 50s. Closing September 7th at Tate Modern, it includes some 130 different pieces.ADNFCR-408-ID-801744402-ADNFCR
