Andy Warhol: Shadows
Andy Warhol: Shadows
Sep 20, 2014-Feb 1, 2015

In 1978-79 Andy Warhol produced Shadows, a monumental, 102-part series of silkscreened canvases. Conceived as one work in multiple parts, Warhol’s exceptional series of variously silkscreened and hand painted canvases features two different compositions, ranging in hue from an electric green to a somber brown. The work's internal compositions are culled from photographs of shadows taken in The Factory, the artist's New York City studio. In Shadows, Warhol extended his long-standing interest in seriality and repetition while forgoing the cultural icons and commodity forms that most often populate his art. MOCA's presentation will feature the full collection of paintings from Dia Art Foundation. Installed edge to edge, the series of abstract panels-once referred to by Warhol as "disco décor"-create a haunting, environmental ensemble.
