  • This event has passed.

The first exhibition in Scotland exclusively dedicated to the commercial textile designs of pop artist and icon Andy Warhol.

Leading figure of the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol’s swiftly successful career began in commercial and advertising art during the 1950s and early 1960s. At this time, Warhol’s output was almost entirely devoted to realising the demands and deadlines of professional clients, such as Glamour magazine where he undertook his first commission.

Andy Warhol: The Textiles will take you on a journey through the unknown and unrecorded world of designs by the influential artist before his Silver Factory days. Showcasing over 35 of Warhol’s textile patterns from the period, depicting an array of colourful objects; ice cream sundaes, delicious toffee apples, colourful buttons, cut lemons, pretzels, and jumping clowns, this exhibition demonstrates how textile and fashion design was a crucial stage in Warhol becoming one of the most iconic artists of the twentieth century.
