Event description
Come to the Wolverhampton Art Gallery to encounter unseen work from the pop art collection and participate in interactive workshops

About this Event

Andy Warhol asked provocative questions for our post-industrial age: What is art? What is life? And what’s their connection? By withholding clear answers, Warhol asked his viewer, ‘What do you think?’ Come along to the Wolverhampton Art Gallery (WAG) and accept Warhol’s challenge! 

You have the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and encounter unseen art from the gallery’s extensive pop art collection. You can participate in three interactive workshops where participants do hands-on research on gems from the collection. Dr Gerry Carlin and Dr Mark Jones talk about sixties pop art and their intersections with pop, art, and psychedelia. Professor Sebastian Groes invites creative responses to Warhol, Angela Carter and J. G. Ballard. Dr Benjamin Halligan ends the event with a~ workshop on Pop Art’s influence on TV, analysing the Batman series (1966-68) and The Mighty Boosh (2004-07). In what ways did first wave Pop Art initiate and energise postmodern popular culture? Find out at this exciting event!
