Andy Warhol. The Mechanical ArtExhibitions and activities
09/14/2017 - 12/31/2017

The exhibitions highlights how Andy Warhol captures the cult of merchandise from industrial inventions of the 19th century. Always attentive to technical and industrial breakthroughs, Warhol used all types of techniques and machinery, from silk-screen printing to video recorders, with production patterns that he himself defined as "pertaining to an assembly line". This apparently impersonal mechanical art, cynically rejects any intentional spiritual burden. Beside a series of essays written on his work, the exhibition includes a selection of portraits of the artist, by photographers Alberto Schommer, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe.

A selection of over 300 works by Andy Warhol from various public and private collections, which portray the technical and conceptual evolution of New Yorkunderground art, emerging from the start of the second half of the 20th century.
