• Andy Warhol
    Warhol Underground
    July 1, 2015 - November 23, 2015
    Centre Pompidou-Metz, Metz, France

    From 1st July to 23 November 2015 the Centre Pompidou-Metz dedicates a solo exhibition to Andy Warhol. Warhol Underground will highlight the influence of the New York musical scene and choreographic vanguard in Andy Warhol’s work. It will be the occasion to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s meeting with The Velvet Underground in 1965, before he became their producer. All along the exhibition, music will lead the visitor to a re-discovery of Warhol’s work, through more than 150 photographs by Nat Finkelstein, Billy Name, Steve Schapiro or Stephen Shore, films and some of Warhol’s most emblematic works (Ten Lizes, Brillo Soap Pads Box, Campbell’s Soup Cans, White Disaster or Big Electric Chair). In addition, archives and vinyl record sleeves—considered by Andy Warhol as genuine art works—will convey a visual and auditory tone to Andy Warhol’s work.
