until 25.01. | #2260ARTatBerlin | CWC Gallery shows from 24th November 2018 the group exhibition Andy Warhol: Fantastic! with works featuring more than 20 international artists who worked with Andy Warhol.
CWC GALLERY is pleased to present the exhibition »Andy Warhol: Fantastic!« From November 24, 2018 onwards. The exhibition includes works by more than 20 international photographic artists who have collaborated with Andy Warhol. The more than 80 portraits of Andy Warhol offer a rare look at the personality of co-founder of Pop Art and one of the most significant artists in history.
The exhibition covers a wide photographic field: from the famous paparazzi photographs by Ron Galella, to spectacular photographic productions by Carl Fischer, to conceptual series by Christopher Makos, whose multi-layered project Altered Image quotes Dadaism and gender discourses around Andy Warho picks up. Each individual work and each exhibited photographic series represents a microcosm of the life of Andy Warhol. The focus is on the artistic synergies that have arisen in the work between him and well-known photographic artists. The factory, founded by Andy Warhol in the early 1960s, also occupies a prominent space in the exhibition. Photographs by Cecil Beaton and Steve Schapiro show rare insights into the inner world of this creative center in New York. The photographs also introduce the artistic environment of Andy Warhol, his companions and the high society that surrounded him.
The visual design of the exhibition “Andy Warhol: Fantastic!” Will be a special treat for all guests in honor of Andy Warhol. A special wall design and a fascinating “Silver Clouds” installation bring the artistic life of Andy Warhol to the CWC GALLERY.
