The theme of this exhibition is taken from a remark by Andy Warhol: “I want to be a machine”, the meaning of which was the thinking that art would become more and more mechanised.
The exhibition features works from Warhol and Paolozzi, featuring images capture from advertisements and photography, with Warhol tracing his images and Paolozzi using collage, before they both turned to screenprinting to turn photographs into print in the early part of the 1960s.
The Warhol Edinburgh exhibition includes rarely seen 1950s drawings by Warhol from the 1950s, alongside his world renowned multi-coloured prints of Marilyn Monroe as well as ‘stitched’ photographs. Paolozzi’s works include those from his proto-pop collages in the 1950s as well as his kaleidoscope-coloured prints from the 60s and 70s.
