The Warhol Look - Glamour, Style, Fashion presents a bold new look at Andy Warhol by examining the artist's fascination with glamour, style and fashionability. Going behind the famous pop-art world Warhol inhabited, it investigates the full range of Warhol's work and reveals how the "Warhol style" has influenced contemporary artists as well as the fashion designers, photographers and video makers of today.

Arguably the most influential artist of the second half of the 20th century, Warhol worked across many artistic fields - controversial pop artist, illustrator, photographer, film producer, publisher, costume designer and painter - he became a cultural phenomenon and icon for his time.

The Warhol Look - Glamour, Style, Fashion examines Warhol's career through seven profusely illustrative phases entitled Hollywood Glamour, The 1950s, Window Display, Silver Factory Style/The 1960s, Drag & Transformation, Interview - the magazine he founded in 1969 - and Uptown/Downtown Style. It includes over 500 objects from the The Andy Warhol Museum, its archive and other international collections. Paintings, costumes, photography, period magazines, reconstructed window displays, film, video and authentic -Warholiana- feature everything from the faux to the fashionable to the fantastic.
