Andy Warhol in Dubrovnik

The exhibition titled “Andy Warhol: I am from nowhere – works from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborce“, opened in the Dubrovnik’s Museum of Modern Art.

The exhibition of one of the founders of pop art in the world, Andy Warhol, is organized by Dubrovnik-Neretva County in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik and the Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborac, Slovakia.

What makes this exhibition more special than other exhibitions that question the phenomenon of the creation of the king of pop art, as it is called in reviews of art history, is looking at his oeuvre from a different angle, questioning his origins through the displayed family artifacts. The project leader and one of the curators of the exhibition, Jelena Tamindžija Donnart, writes in the exhibition catalog about the exhibition and Warhol: “The exhibited works from the Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art collection include a selection of 85 exhibits that include various printing techniques on paper (offset printing, lithography, screen printing on paper and painting on them like watercolors or painting with polymer synthetic colors) and which are the result of his Polaroid portraits, so popular that they became a kind of status symbol for famous people who wanted to have their portraits made in Warhol’s famous Factory. The exhibition “Andy Warhol – I am from nowhere” allows the visitor to imagine the context within which the artist created and from which he emerged, but his appearance and importance on the world art scene still point to the impermanence of borders in his art, as the specific title of the exhibition alludes to. The ubiquity and general recognizability of his works clearly show the strong influence that is especially present today in the general consumerist society, where all the instances of popular culture that the author was fascinated by are multiplied and so present in our everyday life without any sign of slowing down.” Except for the now iconic graphics. Among the exhibits, the photos of the poet, lighting designer and photographer Billy Name, who worked as an archivist at the Factory from 1964 to 1970, recording moments with his camera, stand out.

The curators of the exhibition are Michal Bycko, Martin Cubjak and Jelena Tamindžija Donnart.

The partners of the exhibition are the County of Dubrovnik-Neretva, Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik and the Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborac, and the exhibition is supported by the Prešov region, the City of Dubrovnik, the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik, the Tourist Board of Dubrovnik-Neretva County and Dubrovnik Airport.

The exhibition remains open until Sunday, October 29, 2023.
