Socialist Worker reviewed Tate Modern’s new Andy Warhol exhibition not long before the coronavirus outbreak forced the gallery to close.

Now the exhibition is available on the Tate’s website as a video tour.

It’s also on the Tate’s YouTube channel from Monday 6 April.

Gregor Muir, Director of Tate’s Collection of International Art, and Fiontan Moran, Assistant Curator, share behind-the-scenes insights into the exhibition.

The Tate also promises a wealth of related articles, videos and podcasts—including a tutorial on how to recreate some of Warhol’s printing methods and techniques.

A similar tour of an exhibition of the work of author and illustrator Aubrey Beardsley will be available from Monday of next week.

Also available across Tate’s YouTube channel is a huge range of artist interviews as well as recordings of past talks and events.

And the Tate also offers a range of free art activities, quizzes, films and educational resources for children at home.

Children can learn about weaving like Anni Albers or collaging like Henri Matisse at tate.org.uk/kids.

Educational resources to help while children are off school are also available.

They include lesson plans from exploring animals in art to learning about gender and the body.
