Jenny Alexander, assistant curator of York Art Gallery, has a rest after hanging up art by Andy Warhol
THE relationship between art and music is being celebrated at a new exhibition in York Art Gallery.
Works by LS Lowry, Walter Sickert and Andy Warhol have been brought together for the Art & Music exhibition, which will showcase more than 40 works from the gallery’s collection including oils, prints and ceramics.
The exhibition will look at the many ways music is expressed through art – from the obvious to the more obscure – and its symbolism within works.
Jennifer Alexander, assistant curator of fine art at the gallery, said: “Art and music have always had an intertwined relationship which has meant that both are influenced by each other.
“In this exhibition we will look at works of art which depict or have been influenced by music both directly and indirectly. By pointing out the less obvious links we hope visitors will find new ways to interpret the pieces not only on display but also when viewing art generally.”
A series of events and talks will complement Art & Music.
