An unmissable and unique exhibition of paintings, prints, photographs, films, and installations produced by Warhol over four decades. 

Vincent Fremont, who for almost 20 years worked with Andy Warhol in various capacities including producing and directing his video, television, and film projects in the 1980’s is pictured at the Hugh Lane Gallery with Barbara Dawson, Director of the Hugh Lane Gallery; and Michael Dempsey, Head of Exhibitions, at the preview of Andy Warhol Three Times Out, a major new exhibition of more than 250 of his works at the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin.

This is the largest Warhol exhibition ever held in Ireland. The exhibition is curated by the Director of the Hugh Lane Gallery, Barbara Dawson and Michael Dempsey, Head of Exhibitions. 

Vincent Fremont was one of the founding directors of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and he was closely associated with the establishment of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

The gallery has been working on this unique exhibition for over five years which includes more than 250 works borrowed from museums and private collections in the US, Canada, Europe and the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. One of the most important and recognisable artists of the 20th century, this exhibition celebrates Andy Warhol’s new artistic vision which saw him combine commercial processes with fine art production.

Unique to the exhibition is a section focusing on the work and collaborations both Andy Warhol and Francis Bacon had with acclaimed US artist and photographer Peter Beard, provoking new thinking on the status of these two titans of the 20th century.

The exhibition runs until January 28th, 2024, and tickets can be purchased online or at the gallery.
