Activities for families and adults

A Day with Warhol

Saturday 15 Sep. 2018

To coincide with the closure of the exhibition Warhol. Mechanical Art, MPM will be offering a range of activities for all ages focussed on examining some of the formats the artist worked with during his prolific life. The options for the day include activities such as participative visits for adults and print-making or serial art workshops for all the family. Visitors will also be able to learn about some of Warhol’s techniques and try them out themselves in the educational area that has been set up for the duration of the exhibition.

The day will end with the screening of Yellow Submarine (1968), the last of the four films scheduled in Summer Cinema. Stars of Pop Night, dedicated to some of the best-known Pop-era films. This activity required prior reservation. 

Activities are free with the purchase of the admission ticket, which is always free for children, with the exception of summer cinema (Tickets cost 8 euros and cover admission to the exhibition and a drink at the MPM Café. Limited places available).

Summer Cinema. Stars of Pop Night.
Guided tour to the exhibition and screening. 9pm. With reservation

The last screening of the summer will be Yellow Submarine, filling the museum gardens with music on the night of Friday 15th September. This animated film, directed in 1968 by George Dunning, was inspired by the Beatles song. Pepperland is a happy, music-loving paradise under the sea, protected by Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It undergoes a surprise attack from the Blue Meanies, who hate music. The mayor of the city sends Young Fred off in a yellow submarine to look for help. Fred arrives in Liverpool, where he collects Ringo, John, George and Paul, who travel back with him to an unreal, psychedelic world.
