Transmitting Warhol - I went with family to see the Andy Warhol exhibition at the Tate Liverpool on Saturday. This is a fantastic multimedia exhibition, I particularly enjoyed the Exploding Plastic Inevitable room as I am a long time fan of the Velvets and to see the video and hear the music in such a way was thrilling, I felt...

Went last week to see Andy Warhol exhibition, covered all aspects of his work from the 60's right up to his death. Tate Liverpool does Andy proud we'll worth a visit.

Had lunch in the rain. Good place to sit & watch the world whilst eating a v tasty bowl of chicken & bacon stew. Food good value. Beers all fancy & organic, hence overpriced!

Small but fully formed, it's always a pleasure to visit Tate Liverpool. Most of the exhibitions I've seen there were great, and the shop is small but pretty much a "Best Of" of what you can find at the bigger tate Modern shop, for instance. It'd definitely one of the "must-see" attractions in Liverpool.

This is situated within the Albert Dock warehouses and has free entry to the lower floors. The top floor was given over to an exhibition of work by Andy Warhol, for which a fee was charged. This exhibition was busy and contained all the usual art associated with Warhol. I was disappointed that there was nothing on display that surprised... More

If you go to Liverpool, do not miss the Tate Museum. Great artists, well positioned exhibition. Ground, 1st and 2nd floor are free. If someone from the museum reads this: PLEASE change the frame of Picasso's painting, it kills the work of the artist.

I do like good art, but as with other Tate premises this panders to the art snobs who want to extol the virtues of art that a lot of 5 year old's can produce. There were some good pieces of work but they were few and far between.

Hi I visited the Tate Lpool last week, and was very impressed with the Andy Warhol exhibition which is on for some time. It covers all aspects of his career, from his involvement with the 60s underground and Velvets, through to the time of his death It was interesting to see the range of artistic work he created, including magazines...

I just loved it! I didn't even know Liverpool was home of a Tate Gallery until I got there. The place is amazing and it takes a while to check all the rooms and exhibits. In my case - I traveled in November and the weather was quite chilly - going to Tate was the perfect plan to enjoy a... More
