Andy Warhol: Three Times Out

It’s been a while since a blockbuster salute to Warhol has hit town, IMMA in 2007 to be precise. Arguably, the best known and most influential artist of the 20th Century what fascinates us now is his appeal or relevance to a new TikTok-ified audience – will they care for his pop art? How well will Silver Clouds translate to Insta reels? It’s almost a comfort blanket of sorts for older generations as they embrace the soup cans and nod to Nixon. What actually caught our attention is the room in which his lesser known early drawings around love, sex and desire are housed. They show the range of his talent from the get-go. His ‘Electric Chair’ series which dates back to 1963 still resonates – there’s a Xeroxed style replication which tightropes the viewer into questioning their relationship to the dark subject matter whilst appreciating his colourful pop take on it.
