This publication documents the exhibition Andy Warhol: ARTIST ROOMS On Tour with the Art Fund.
Part of the ARTIST ROOMS scheme run by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland, this exhibition brought together nearly 200 works by one of the icons of 20th century art.
The exhibition was shown across two galleries; John Hansard Gallery and Southampton City Art Gallery (March – June 2011).
Southampton City Art Gallery exhibited over 100 of Warhol’s prints and posters, as well as a selection of major paintings. These covered a range of subjects across Warhol’s career, from early works made in the Factory in 1962 until his death in 1987.
John Hansard Gallery focused on Warhol’s hugely influential film and photography, showcasing rarely-seen stitched photographs and self-portraits alongside iconic film works from the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, including a number of Screen Tests, Factory Diaries and the film work Lupe (1965).
Texts by the Galleries’ curators, Alice Workman and Ros Carter, contextualise the works shown, along with an interview with Anthony d’Offay, founder of ARTIST ROOMS.
