Marilyn Monroe, Campbell’s soup cans and frenetic, interpretive dancing are to feature in a major Andy Warhol exhibition at Tate Modern.
The Warhol show was announced on Tuesday as part of Tate’s 2020 exhibition programme across its four UK galleries. It includes the scandalous drawings of Aubrey Beardsley at Tate Britain, the tropical Guatemala-inspired paintings of Vivian Suter at Tate Liverpool, and the constructivist sculptures and designs of Naum Gabo at Tate St Ives.
The biggest name is Warhol, with a major six-month show opening in March next year.
Tate said it would present Warhol as a shy outsider who was at the heart of American art and culture, someone who “reimagined what art could be in an age of immense social, political and technological change”.
