Andy Warhol exhibition in Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum

Tomorrow (October 12), the exhibition will open about the American artist Andy Warhol.

Forty years after the first major European Warhol exhibition in Amsterdam, the Stedelijk Museum has organised an exhibition to shed new light on the oeuvre of the celebrated Pop Art master.

With film, photography, video and famous icons ranging from Marilyn Monroe, Mao and Campbell Soup Cans, Andy Warhol – Other Voices, Other Rooms is a window onto the artistic thinking of this trendsetting artist, revealing the ‘conceptual soul’ of his work.

Visitors literally receive a ‘red carpet welcome’ to the exhibition, treated to a barrage of paparazzi-style camera flashes as their entrance is photographed.
Music by The Velvet Underground, the band Warhol launched from his famous Factory, accompanies visitors as they roam through a film landscape that includes Screen Tests, Sleep, Blow Job, The Chelsea Girls, Kitchen and Mrs. Warhol.

The exhibtion lasts until January 13 2008.
