Volcano: Turner to Warhol


Warwickshire, CV35 9HZ

01926 645 5000

July 24 – October 31

11.00 – 17.00

This is the first exhibition to celebrate the extraordinary artistic outpourings that volcanic eruptions have triggered over the past five centuries.

The exhibition ranges from early engravings, showing imagined cross-sections of the fiery centre of the earth, to an explosive series of paintings by Joseph Wright, J M W Turner and Andy Warhol, as well as James P Graham’s IDDU, a 360° video filmed on Stromboli. It is a chance to examine the presence of volcanoes as geological phenomena and their power and influence, through an exciting range of historic and recent works of art.

Eye-opening and spectacular, the exhibition traces a route through the sequence of volcanic eruptions – from the calm volcano and first ominous rumblings, to cataclysmic explosion, through panic and death to aftermath, and then quietly back to dormancy and extinction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_single_image image=”3894″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]James P Graham: still from IDDU[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=”none” el_class=”with-link”]    back to ART DIARY[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
