The Dalí Museum Debuts Andy Warhol
Both Andy Warhol and Salvador Dalí were popular artists in the New York art world during the 1950s-70s. Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality. is a compilation of how Warhol interpreted pop culture and art according to other artists, fame and human mortality.
The Warhol: Art. Fame. Mortality. exhibit features 35 paintings, 20 drawings, 50 photographs and a collection of Warhol films. Visitors of the exhibit will get their “15 minutes of fame” in the Warhol screen-test installation, which will film them sitting in front of the camera for a minute.
“Our new exhibit will feature an important selection of works from Andy Warhol, one of the world’s most well-known artists,” says Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of the Dalí Museum. “It’s important for the Dalí to present works from other artists, especially those that relate to Salvador Dalí, to highlight different perspectives while showing their unique connections.”
The Dalí Museum houses more than 2,000 pieces of Salvador Dalí’s oil paintings, watercolors, photographs, sculptures and more in the uniquely recognizable geodesic glass dome building. Check out www.thedali.org or call 727-823-3767 for more information.
