Warhol Unlimited




Today I saw an amazing exhibition devoted to Andy Warhol, at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (MAM) and I really liked it.

Amongst the 200 works presented, I was very impressed by "Shadows" (1978-1979) a huge painting made out of a group of 102 silkscreened canvases of 17 different colours and 130 meters long. It's one of the biggest paintings I ever saw.

I also really enjoyed the Jacky Kenndy and the Mao friezes. About Mao, Warhol said : "They are so nutty. They don't believe in creativity. The only picture the ever have is of Mao Zedong. It's great. It looks like a silkscreen".

My piece of advice: avoid going on a Sunday afternoon. It's overcrowded.

Until February 7th, 2016
