This major new exhibition of works by one of the most recognisable and influential artists of the late twentieth century offers a rare personal insight into how Andy Warhol (1928–1987) and his work marked a period of cultural transformation.

Drawing upon recent scholarship and featuring over 100 works from across his remarkable career, the show provides a new lens through which to view this American icon. While he is best known for his paintings of Coca-Cola bottles and Marilyn Monroe that held up a mirror to American pop culture, this exhibition emphasises recurring themes such as 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.
