"Love is Enough" at the Modern Art Museum, Oxford.
Under the guidance of Jeremy Deller,
laureate of the Turner prize, the exhibition simultaneously presents relatively unknown works by William Morris and Andy Warhol. This daring juxtaposition puts into perspective the prolific careers of these two artistic figures and defines the conceptual backdrop of the eras during which they were active. “Here are two figures who have so much in common, and not just their tendency to contradict one another”, explains Jeremy Deller. Morris and Warhol established engraving businesses and distributed their work by new means of mass production. Both also worked with contemporary artists on the redefinition of reproduction processes. This exhibition highlights the various mutual points of contact in their working methods.
Until 8th March.
