Well, not quite. I’ll be soundtracking the private view for the new exhibition of Andy Warhol’s paintings and posters at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Thursday, from 5.30pm. It’ll be laid-back folk, indie pop and electronic soundscapes all the way, with the odd ’60s and ’70s classic dropped in to complement the wonderful Velvet Underground concert posters and portraits of celebrity icons including Gilbert and George and Muhammad Ali on display, from an artist who simultaneously commented on the emergence of pop culture and played a major part in shaping it.
As far as I know, the event isn’t closed to the public, despite the private view status. The exhibition runs until 21 September, and is complimented by an exhibition of Warhol’s early drawings at New Art Gallery Walsall.
