Over the course of a 30 year long career, Andy Warhol transformed contemporary art. This exhibition at The MAC is the first significant exhibition of Andy Warhol’s work in Northern Ireland.
Andy Warhol is one of the most influential American artists to emerge in the post-war period. The power of Warhol’s work comes from its focus on fundamental human themes – the beauty and glamour of youth and fame, material culture, the passing of time and the presence of death. Employing mass-production techniques, Warhol challenged preconceived notions about the nature of art and erased traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture.
