This major exhibition presents the artist who embraced consumerism, celebrity and counter culture – and changed modern art in the process.

Andy Warhol was the son of immigrants who became an American icon. Initially working as a commercial illustrator, his skill at transforming the imagery of American culture soon found its unforgettable realisation in his groundbreaking pop art.

Visitors to this major retrospective will be able to see his iconic pop images of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s Soup Cans, play with his floating Silver Clouds and experience the psychedelic multimedia environment of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

The exhibition will bring together rarely seen work from the 1970s that display his skill as a painter, as well as his experiments with different forms of mass media. Popularly radical and radically popular, Warhol will emerge as an artist who reimagined what art could be in an age of immense social, political and technological change.
