Discover the man behind the pop-art persona at a new exhibition, Transmitting Andy Warhol at the TATE Liverpool.

Ever dreamt of admiring Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Diptych? This November, the TATE Liverpool offers a rare glimpse of Warhol’s iconic tribute to the screen siren amongst 100 other ground-breaking works.

It’s an opportunity to delve deeper into Warhol’s world and discover that he was more than just the sum of his soup cans and Brillo pads pop-art.

The exhibition offers a new insight into his lesser-known artistic mediums such as broadcasting, film, music and publishing.  It’s a chance to understand the creative inspiration that influenced a generation and a cultural icon who changed the face of modern art forever.

After all, Warhol himself decreed that ‘art should be for everyone’.

Transmitting Andy Warhol, TATE Liverpool, 7 November 2014 – 8 February 2015,
