Hugh Lane Gallery, Friday 6th October - Sunday 28th January
A unique exhibition of Andy Warhol’s paintings, prints, photographs, films and installations will open at Hugh Lane Gallery in October showcasing the artist’s extraordinary range of artworks produced over four decades.
Andy Warhol Three Times Out has been five years in the making and includes more than 250 works on loan from museums and private collections in the US, Canada, Europe and the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The exhibition is curated by Barbara Dawson, Director of Hugh Lane Gallery and Michael Dempsey, Head of Exhibitions, and it is the most exciting show in the arts calendar this year.
Andy Warhol is without doubt one of the most important and recognisable artists of the 20th century. He devised new ways of image making, experimenting with multiple images silkscreened on canvas, printing, photography, film, publishing, advertising, performance, video and television. Combining these mediums, Warhol challenged conventional canons in art, dismissing traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture.
A broad range of Warhol’s work has been selected for the exhibition in Dublin, from the iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans, Flowers, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy and Chairman Mao, to his observations on identity and mortality in his multiple self-portraits, skulls, electric chairs and avant garde films Empire, Sleep, Kiss and Outer and Inner Space. In addition, visitors to the exhibition will experience Warhol’s immersive Silver Clouds sculpture.
