Warhol Unlimited, Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris

Warhol Unlimited, Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris

Without a shadow of a doubt this is an exceptional series of paintings. As the vast environmental work called ‘Shadows’ is exhibited for the first time in its entirety in Europe, we are reminded of Andy Warhol’s status as the artist of excess. With 102 silkscreened paintings utilising 17 different colours exceptionally deployed over 130 metres, it is a work that is colossal in size as well as concept. Even today, more than 35 years after its creation, ‘Shadows’ demonstrates the ability of the King of Pop Art to shake the conventions of art, from design to staging. Asked whether they were art, Warhol said no. "There was disco music playing at the exhibition party, so I guess that makes them disco decor." The serial dimension of Warhol’s work extends to other examples on show at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, including the ‘Electric Chairs’, the ‘Jackies’, the ‘Flowers’ and the ‘Maos’.
