Tate Modern, in London, closed its doors to the public on March 12. But curators Gregor Muir and Fiontán Moran take us on an amazing virtual tour of the exhibition dedicated to Andy Warhol. Sexuality, family roots, or religion are among the themes explored in the show and discussed in this short, yet rich video.
It is the largest retrospective dedicated to the American artist organized by Tate Modern in nearly twenty years. Warhol’s iconic paintings of Marilyn Monroe, Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup are some of the highlights of this critically-acclaimed show which also brings more in-depth understanding on the artist’s personal life, sexuality and neurosis. Biographical texts introducing the 12 rooms of this remarkable retrospective were published on the Tate Modern’s website to provide a complete overview of the master’s career.
