Andy Warhol’s work will be featuring at the Whitworth as part of their ‘Artists Room’ exhibitions which will show the sharp critical opinions of an artist known to many primarily as art salesman, purveyor of product and celebrant of capitalism.


Supported by Arts Council, Art Fund and Creative Scotland, the exhibition is drawn from ‘Artist Rooms’, a collection of international modern and contemporary art owned by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate on behalf of the public. These exhibitions focus on themes of death, politics and identity will present audiences with Warhol’s reading of the American Dream at a time when the country will be under scrutiny just days after the 2016 US Presidential election.
