Transmitting Andy Warhol
- 7 November 2014 — 8 February 2015 *on now
Discover the man who transformed the modern art world. 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.
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.
The exhibition includes a spectacular presentation of the travelling multi-media spectacle The Exploding Plastic Inevitable (EPI), Warhol’s famed ‘total art’ environment. Used as a framework for a series of performances by the Velvet Underground and Nico, EPI will bring the atmosphere of 1960s New York to the Liverpool Waterfront.
