Taipei’s CKS Memorial hall is host to a 4-gallery retrospective to the late pop art icon and creator, Andy Warhol. So much of what we celebrate today as street and contemporary art is erected through the trench dug out by Warhol’s work, as the American artist blurred the lines between industrial and fine art. So when we had the chance to take a look at this exhibit, we jumped at the opportunity.
Accessibility becomes a major theme of the exhibit, with a multitude of magazine and album covers designed and signed by Warhol. One can only be amused at how Andy chose to autograph the prints, often inscribing his name right over the faces of the subjects of the portraits. This adds an extra and curious layer to the exhibit, making one wonder exactly what went through his head daily.
