24 WAYS OF LOOKING: PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY OF ANDY WARHOL

Projection Room

Andy Warhol was aware of photography’s power to communicate and, from the very beginning of his career, he experimented with the possibilities it provided to create his own public image.

In the screening room, during the exhibition Warhol. Mechanical Art, visitors will be able to view a selection of photographic portraits of the artist that have become part of the collective imaginary and which have contributed to constructing the legend of Warhol and his life and work. Through the lenses of 24 selected photographers, including international icons Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Peggy Jarrell Kaplan, Robert Mapplethorpe, Duane Michals, Alberto Schommer Stephen Shore and Weegee – we can catch a glimpse of Warhol’s personality in snapshots, posed shots, studio portraits and scenes from his more private life.
