Andy Warhol: The Same Thing Over and Over Again

Davis, G. (Invited speaker)

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

I was invited to give a guest talk to accompany the 'Warhol/Paolozzi: I Am A Machine' exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland. My talk explored the role of mechanical repetition in Warhol's work, focusing in particular on his paintings and screen prints of celebrities. The significance of repetition, seriality and sameness in Warhol's work were discussed; the connections between the content of his work and the technologies he used to make it were also examined.
