"Andy Warhol. Dark Star" at Museo Jumex, Mexico City, Mexico.
On view June 2 through September 17, 2017.
Museo Jumex will present the exhibition "Andy Warhol. Dark Star." This survey provides an insight of the conceptual and technical shifts that marked Warhol’s art practice: from his paintings of consumer products, to the silk-screen series portraying movie stars, celebrities, and disasters. Considering the historical context in which Warhol conceived these works, the curatorial selection emphasizes the utopian promises as well as the dark side of post-war media and consumer culture.
The exhibition "Andy Warhol. Dark Star" has been organized by Museo Jumex in collaboration with guest curator Douglas Fogle. The support of many institutions and private collections for the loans has been essential. The exhibition, which will occupy all of Museo Jumex’s exhibition spaces, will be accompanied by two publications: a booklet and a catalogue co-published by Museo Jumex and Prestel.
