Book launch - 3D Warhol: Andy Warhol and Sculpture
Wednesday, 27 September 2017
Wine reception from 7:30pm
Rain machines; alarmed kosher pickle jars filled with gemstones; replica corn flakes boxes; 'disco decor'; time capsules; art bombs; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows that are clouds; paintings that are also films; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; holograms.
This is a book about the vast array of sculptural work made by Andy Warhol between 1954 and 1987 - a period that begins long before the first Pop paintings, and ends in the year of his death.
3D Warhol argues that Warhol's engagement with sculpture produced 'trespasses' that bisected the expectations, allegiances and values within art historical and social sites of investiture. This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major but overlooked aspect of Warhol's oeuvre, providing an essential new perspective on the artist's legacy.
Join us for a wine reception to celebrate the launch of 3D Warhol: Andy Warhol and Sculpture (I. B. Tauris, 2017) where the publication will be on sale at the reduced price of £10. With an introduction by its author, Dr Thomas Morgan Evans (Henry Moore Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellow, 2013-15).
Thomas Morgan Evans is currently a teaching fellow at the Slade School of Fine Art. He has taught at the The Courtauld Institute, Kent University and University College London, where he received his doctorate in Art History in 2012. It was there also that he researched the material for 3D Warhol, with the support of his fellowship.
This event is free of charge and open to all, no booking required. It follows a lecture by Yohko Watanabe, 'Jiro Takamatsu and Three Exhibitions in 1970' , which starts at 6pm and is programmed alongside our current exhibition, Jiro Takamatsu: The Temperature of Sculpture.
