“Una Storia Americana” is the title of an exhibition of over 150 works – including 20 polaroids – by Andy Warhol, which opens in early October at the Palazzo Blu in Pisa.
The exhibition is curated by Walter Guadagnini and Claudia Beltramo Ceppi, and sets out to trace the creative journey of Pop Art’s most famous proponent. The show is made possible by the collaboration of the Andy Warhol Museum, in Pittsburg, and features works culled from some of the world’s most famous collections and galleries.
On view are icons of the last half of the twentieth century, such as the Brillo Box, the Campbell Soup Cans, the “Most Wanted” and Electric Chair canvases, as well as the portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, Mao, and Nixon. Also on display are large format works such as “Myths,” “Dollar,” “Skull” and the image made famous in Italy “Knives,” which appeared on Roberto Saviano’s Mafia tome, “Gomorrah.”
