One of the most iconic artists of the 20th century is coming to Malaga

Museo Picasso Málaga is hosting a major retrospective of Andy Warhol (1928-1987), with a special focus on the transmutations that his legacy underwent during his career, and the repetitive, schematizing and contrived nature of his visual work for more than three decades of feverish creative activity.

Warhol. Mechanical Art contains the most emblematic and universal icons of the world created by Warhol: the Campbell’s soup can, the portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor, experimental films such as Screen Tests, and the legendary multimedia installation he devised with The Velvet Underground.
