Warhol is Here exhibition announced
ARTIST ROOMS On Tour with the Art Fund
24 September 2011 – 8 January 2012
Warhol is Here at the De La Warr Pavilion will present and explore the work of Andy Warhol in the context of his beliefs, lifestyle and above all, his legacy for the 21st century.
Emphasis will be placed on Warhol’s importance to audiences, and particularly to young people, who have been exposed more to the myth of Warhol rather than the content and context of his work.
The exhibition will include early drawings, stitched photographs, self-portraits, very large screenprint canvases and a number of posters. They will be taken from a selection of works from ARTIST ROOMS, (a new collection of modern and contemporary art held by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland for the nation,) as well as those sourced from other private and UK collections.
The Pavilion will also show a programme of films made by Warhol and will publish a small handbook of essays by artists, curators, writers and musicians commenting upon the memory, influence and impact of Warhol.
Following the critical and popular success of Beuys Is Here which attracted over 45,000 visitors in summer 2009, the De La Warr Pavilion is delighted to take part in the second ARTIST ROOMS tour where 21 museums and galleries across the UK (including 17 venues outside of London and Edinburgh) in 2011 will be showing ARTIST ROOMS, exhibitions and displays from the collection assembled by the art collector and curator, Anthony d’Offay.
