Installation view of the exhibition



Andy Warhol
10 July – 31 Aug 2002

Retrospective  exhibition of small paintings, prints and drawings by Andy Warhol, one of the most significant and influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century.

Ranging from the banal to the profound, the works of Andy Warhol have become familiar icons capturing a period in time.  Images such as Electric Chairs, Campbell’s Soup Cans, Brillo Boxes or Marilyn act as signposts that guide us through  contemporary American culture and society. At the same time, they provide comments on themes which are universal and continue to be relevant to us today: consumerism, mass-production, celebrity, catastrophes and death.
