Over 100 works are included in the exhibition, which features one of the artist’s most important works The Marilyn Diptych (1962), as well as prints from the Campbell’s Soup series (1968), a group of Brillo Boxes (1968) and portrait paintings including Gilbert & George (1975), Joseph Beuys (1980) and Robert Mapplethorpe (1983).
The collection also boasts drawings from as early as the 1940s, stitched photographs, Polaroid self portraits, posters and an entire gallery dedicated to late paintings from the 1980s.
The show is assembled from a selection of works from ARTIST ROOMS, a new collection of modern and contemporary art held by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland, as well as those sourced from Tate collection, The British Museum, V&A, Cecil Higgins Art Gallery other private collections.
To complement this collection of some of Warhol’s most well-known works, The Pavilion will host a programme of music, live performance, film, events and workshops inspired by the artist and will publish a small handbook of essays by artists, curators, writers and musicians commenting on Warhol’s memory, influence and impact.
A stone’s throw from Newhaven (well, a three-and-a-half-hour-ferry ride), Dieppe is a bit of a hidden holiday gem, so shhhh, don’t tell too many people about this post…
Unlike many French port towns, the picturesque town isn’t industrial and retains much of the glamour it was no doubt renowned for in the early part of the 21st century. At just £30 return for a foot passenger, it’d be rude not to hop across the channel and check out its many vintage delights for yourself. Here’s a little taster of what you can look forward to:
Previously used as a doctor’s surgery, Villa Perrotte, epitomizes the Art Deco style of the 1920s, and now doubles as a contemporary art gallery. The iron staircase bannisters and stained glass window is a particularly stunning example of the sleek architectural style.
Dieppe boasts many brocantes, or flea markets, ranging from disorganised warehouses to well-presented antique shops, selling everything from furniture, art, homewares and jewellery. Many of them are located on Rue d’Écosse and Rue St Jacques, both just off the Grande Rue. The Saturday market, held on this main strip, also hosts a handful of second-hand sellers, offering items such as art deco figurines, metal advertising signs and vintage bar ware.
