The Andy Warhol - Pop Art Identities exhibition is dedicated to the famous American artist Andy Warhol and brings together more than 160 original works and previously unseen films.
The exhibition aims to re-read Warhol's artistic journey from two specific points: his desire to transform his weaknesses into strengths and his aspiration to be seen as a witness to his “here and now”.
More than 160 original works make us understand how Warhol's ideas masked precise creative strategies that, in some cases, were nourished by chance and hide a sort of acceptance of destiny, of a mysterious and unthinkable force that regulates existence.
To be sure of being a tool that would project all things in their essence into the future and above all to show them in a new light, Warhol stopped drawing and painting, devising personal artistic techniques capable of guaranteeing uniqueness in seriality. One of the many contradictions of him that will make him famous, defined by most as an "earthly genius", a predominant figure of the Pop Art movement and one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.
The exhibition is produced by MetaMorfosi and presented by GC Events, with the scientific curatorship of Maurizio Vanni.
