Andy Warhol – Ferens Art Gallery, Hull

Hull’s Ferens Art Gallery has amassed an impressive collection of Warhol art and memorabilia – one room here focuses exclusively on his posters and films – for this summer exhibition. Impressively, and surprisingly, the show has been kept free, distinguishing it (in character if not style of content) from the capital’s programme of easy-sell summer blockbusters.

The works themselves vary from the afore-mentioned posters to his famous stitched photographs (including the “potentially disturbing” Cadaver). Three rooms have been given to the show, allowing space to make the development of Warhol’s work clear.

Well curated, with a good amount of less-than-obvious information given, this is definitely worth seeing should you find yourself in Hull.
