Andy Warhol at the Tate Modern

Visitors are invited to use this online guide to explore this major retrospective exhibition, the first on Andy Warhol presented at Tate Modern (previously featured in the 03-23-2018 Scout Report) in close to 20 years. On the page linked above, visitors can watch a seven-minute video introduction with curators Gregor Muir and Fiontan Moran that explains how the exhibition looks at Warhol through three lenses: Warhol's immigrant experience; his queer identity; and his views on death and religion, which were formed growing up in Pittsburgh and attending weekly mass in the Eastern Orthodox Church. In 2020, the physical exhibition spread over 12 rooms, all of which can all be explored online. For instance, Room 1: Andrew Warhola features documents such as the ship manifest listing Julia Warhola, his mother, upon her arrival in the U.S. on June 11, 1921, as well as her passport photo and other photos of Andy Warhol as a young boy. Other rooms document Warhol's 1963 film Sleep; the Factory; Warhol's injuries from being shot by Valerie Solanas in 1968; and finally Room 12, which features Warhol's Sixty Last Suppers, from a series of over 100 silk screen prints and paintings created in 1986. A PDF exhibition guide with artifact lists for each room can be found to download under the embedded video introduction.
