A special curated exhibition presenting works by American Pop artist Andy Warhol will open at the Picasso Museum in Malaga on May 31st.
Titled ‘Warhol. Mechanical Art’ the exhibition presents the complex oeuvre of the artist, highlighting the creative phases he underwent throughout his career. Warhol’s long lasting impact on the art world derives from his exploration of themes taken from pop culture, and the systematic and obsessive use of sound and image-capturing recording devices such as the camera, tape-recorder and silkscreen painting.
The exhibition presents over 400 works on loan from 45 different sources; a selection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, silkscreen works, installations, films, record covers, posters and photographs. Including some of his most iconic works such as the Campbell’s soup can series, portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor and experimental films such as Screen Tests, the legendary multimedia installation he conceived in collaboration with American rock band The Velvet Underground.
The travelling exhibition was showcased at Caixa Forum in Barcelona last year and is currently on show at Caixa Forum in Madrid and is the biggest retrospective of the artists work ever to be presented in Malaga.
Warhol. Mechanical Art’ will be on view at the Picasso Museum in Malaga from May 31st through to September 16th, 2018.
