Discover Andy Warhol’s Work Through This Virtual Tour ⇒ Despite closing down indefinitely just five days after opening the “Andy Warhol” exhibition, London’s Tate Museum did not let the pandemic stop the public from getting to know this iconic artist better, having filmed a walk-through of the exhibit and a discussion on the subject by Tate Museum’s curated, which you can now watch from the comfort of your home.
The video allows the public to take a private virtual tour of the Andy Warhol exhibition accompanied by expert guides, which will help understand this artist and his works better than anyone.
“Andy Warhol is mostly known as a Pop artist, but in this exhibition, we really wanted to return to the man, and think about all of the desires, the fears that may have [driven] him to create art,” the curators mention in the tour. “He was an artist that really, despite all of his insecurities, tried to be himself.” To achieve that purpose, the exhibition’s over 100 works of Andy Warhol are divided into three major groups according to important aspects of his life and identity: his immigrant roots, his input as an LGBTQ+ community member and his personal views on religion and death.
“While it is sad that our museum doors are closed, we can still offer a rich, deep, and inspiring experience of Tate online,” says Hilary Knight, Tate’s digital director, of the video tour, while also claiming that the virtual tour is not an equivalent of seeing the exhibit in person. “We are not trying to replicate a museum visit. This is how we deliver Tate’s purpose in an interconnected, digital way.”
