Andy Warhol Superstar
Cortina | from 07 Dec 2018 to 22 Apr 2019
Cortina d’Ampezzo is hosting a great exhibition on the founding father of Pop Art. “Andy Warhol Superstar” features more than 100 pieces of Warhol, perhaps the wittiest interpreter of mass society and consumerism, whose art is also an analysis of the American society of the 60s.
The Mario Rimoldi Modern Art Museum will showcase some of the artist’s most important pieces: from the colourful Liz (1964) and the S&H Green Stamps (1965) to the iconic Marilyn (1967). The exhibition includes other famous pieces of Warhol’s: the Brillo Box (1970), Mao of 1972 and 1974, and 1980’s Campbell’s Soup.
Andy Warhol was able to transform the icons of the American mass culture, becoming one of the most famous artists in history. Founding elements of mass consumption and pop culture, including Coca Cola, Elvis Presley, Campbell’s Soup and Liz Taylor, become timeless icons in his art.
“Andy Warhol Superstar” tells the story of a man, character and artist that changed the history of art as well as that of music, cinema and fashion, by reshaping any pre-existing aesthetic concept.
His fifteen minutes of celebrity are yet to end.
