ANDY WARHOL EXHIBITS a glittering alternative
Exhibition artist, installation artist, or perhaps closeted curator? ANDY WARHOL EXHIBITS a glittering alternative presents rarely shown works that look behind the facade of the world-famous Pop Art icon to rediscover Warhol’s capabilities as a groundbreaking exhibition and installation artist. For the first time ever, viewers will be given an exemplary overview of the artist’s exhibition practice without letting his early and late works fall by the wayside. This cross-section places equal value on the myriad media Warhol used and shows that his modes of presentation should be understood as an essential part of his oeuvre. Two aspects of Warhol’s dual persona—the oft-quoted staged one and the hidden one barely noticed by the public—are juxtaposed on two levels of the mumok building.
