Andy Warhol at La Boverie Museum in Liège
Until 28 February 2021, the Warhol - The American Dream Factory exhibition highlights the career of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
This child of Slovak immigrants with modest origins, who was born on 6 August 1928 in Pittsburgh and died on 22 February 1987 in New York, has left us a considerable artistic footprint. It is this epic of the emblematic Pop Art figure that the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Liège is inviting visitors to discover.
In the early 1960s, he created his first works inspired by everyday objects such as the Campbell's Soup Cans painting. Andy Warhol followed this with a series of portraits of celebrities such as Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy, using the silkscreen printing technique to show the reproducible character of his provocative and colourful art.
His most famous works and other rare documents from all over the world have been brought together in Liège to delight visitors. In addition to the exhibition, the La Boverie Museum will also offer concerts, films and themed evenings.
