Andy Warhol — 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 his capabilities as a groundbreaking exhibition and installation artist.
It will be the first ever representative overview of the Warhol’s exhibition practice, without ignoring his early and his late work.
This broad cross-section will permit a balanced view of his use of diverse media and it will show that his modes of display must be considered key elements of his artistic work.
Includes the classic 1963 interview, ‘What is Pop Art?’ between Andy Warhol and the influential critic and curator, Gene Swenson.
Published on the occasion of the major exhibition at MUMOK, Vienna (26 September 2020 – 31 January 2021).
