Anyone with an interest in pop-art should book a place on two unmissable free lectures lined up this weekend as part of Warhol Croydon month.
Renowned art dealer and Warhol expert, Henry Koelsch, is visiting Croydon from his Los Angeles gallery to discuss how popular culture meets fine art through the gift of Warhol. The two-hour lectures will examine Andy Warhol’s promotion of screen printing and how, as an artist, he considered the artwork produced to be a product of mass production with mass appeal. Both events run from 7.30 to 9.30pm in the Braithwaite Hall, which is located in the Clocktower in Katharine Street, Croydon.
- Friday 22 September: Warhol – Face to Face, hosted by Henry Koelsch
- Saturday 23 September: Warhol Lecture – Factory Productions, hosted by Henry Koelsch
