Andy Warhol

  • Read 'Warhol and Dance' (2010)


    ‘I never wanted to be a painter…I wanted to be a tap-dancer.’ Andy Warhol, 1966
    Dance can enliven us now more than ever, and here, we look back at Andy Warhol’s rare and graceful 1950s line drawings of dancers which Neil Printz, editor of the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, called his ‘Warm-up drawings’. To complement Warhol’s recently opened retrospective at Tate Modern, we are pleased to share our exhibition catalogue 
    Warhol and Dance (2010), which you can access in full including an essay by dance critic Anna Kisselgoff.
    The lively line drawings refer to personalities who took part in the amazingly diverse growth of American dance in the 1950s. Ranging from references to ballet to modern dance, as well as tap dance and ethnic forms, these drawings reveal Warhol’s fascination with performance and the brilliance of the portraits he made throughout his career.
    While Tate Modern is currently closed to the public, their 
    exhibition guide is available online and it is the subject of BBC 4's upcoming series, Museums in Quarantine. Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac has worked closely with the artist and the Warhol Foundation since the 1980s, exhibiting his renowned Campbell's Soup Boxes and Heads After Picasso from the mid-1980s, as well as his more intimate drawings such as the Dance (1952–54) drawings.

  • Andy Warhol Retrospective at Tate Modern
    March 12, 2020 - September 6, 2020
    Tate Modern
    Bankside, London SE1 9TG

    Andy Warhol (1928–87) was one of the most recognisable artists of the late 20th century, yet his life and work continue to fascinate and be interpreted anew. A shy, and gay man from a religious, migrant, low-income household, he forged his own distinct path to emerge as the epitome of the pop art movement. This major new exhibition at Tate Modern – the first at the gallery for almost 20 years – offers visitors a rare personal insight into how Warhol and his work marked a period of cultural transformation. Drawing upon recent scholarship, it provides a new lens through which to view this American icon. 

    Featuring over 100 works from across his remarkable career, the show sheds light on how Warhol’s experiences shaped his unique take on 20th century culture, positioning him within the shifting creative and political landscape in which he worked. While he is best known for his iconic paintings of Coca-Cola bottles and Marilyn Monroe that held up a mirror to American culture, this exhibition emphasises recurring themes around desire, identity and belief that emerge from his biography. It shows how this innovative artist reimagined what art could be in an age of immense social, political and technological change.

All along the exhibition, music will lead the visitor to a re-discovery of Warhol’s work, through more than 150 photographs by Nat Finkelstein, Billy Name, Steve Schapiro or Stephen Shore, films and some of Warhol’s most emblematic works (Ten Lizes, Brillo Soap Pads Box, Campbell’s Soup Cans, White Disaster or Big Electric Chair). In addition, archives and vinyl record sleeves—considered by Andy Warhol as genuine art works—will convey a visual and auditory tone to Andy Warhol’s work.

  • The End of the 20th Century. The Best Is Yet to Come. A Dialogue with the Marx Collection
    September 14, 2013 - March 30, 2014
    Hamburger Bahnhof
    Berlin, Germany

    The 20th century, in whose shadow we still live today, is widely considered the first to be more about the future than the past. For while both scientific forecasting and the notion of progress originated back in the European Enlightenment, it was the prodigious breakthroughs and milestones of the 20th century, the global cataclysms and vicissitudes from the First World War onwards that brought the future to the forefront of politics, science, the arts and everyday life.
    Curated by Eugen Blume and Catherine Nichols
