The exhibition brings together the most famous works by Andy Warhol, gathered from big museums and leading private collections around the world, as well as rare documents exhibited here for the first time. Thus, we are witness to forty years of tumultuous American history, whose soul Warhol captured like no other of his contemporaries. During this exhibition, the heart of La Boverie will beat to the rhythm of the crazy nights of Manhattan, when musicians, poets, actors and eccentrics of all stripes met at Warhol’s “Factory”.
During this show, the “Factory” will set up on the banks of the Meuse!
- Over 50 original Warhol works, many multiples and works created in collaboration with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, loaned by leading international museums (MoMA, Tate, The Andy Warhol Museum, Israel Museum…) and private collections (never shown to the general public).
- Exceptional archives: films, book and magazine covers, record sleeves and posters... all made by the artist.
- An innovative scenography, which captures the spirit of the era in sounds and images.
