Warhol: Bardot / Gagosian Gallery, London

The exhibition Warhol: Bardot at Gagosian Gallery Davies Street in London brings together two icons: Andy Warhol and Brigitte Bardot. Based on a photograph taken by Richard Avedon in 1959, Andy Warhol created a series of portraits using the techniques and style he is known for. Five of the works on show have never been exhibited publicly before, and never together in series. In this video, we have a closer look at Andy Warhol’s portrait series of Brigitte Bardot. The exhibition runs until November 12, 2011.

Museum Brandhorst Opening in Munich

With the opening of the Museum Brandhorst in Munich’s “Kunstareal”, the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen gain an institution with an impressive collection of works of modern and contemporary art. The Museum Brandhorst is the new home of the Udo and Anette Brandhorst Collection.

Two focal points of emphasis give the Brandhorst Collection its character. With more than sixty paintings, drawings, and sculptures by the American artist Cy Twombly (born 1928), it offers the greatest overview of Twombly’s development outside the USA. The whole upper floor is dedicated to Cy Twombly and shows, among other works the Lepanto and Roses cycles. The second focal point is Andy Warhol, who is represented with over 100 pieces, among them two huge Last Supper and Oxidation paintings. The collection features other positions with artists such as Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz, Gerhard Richter, Eric Fischl, Mario Merz, Franz West, Katharina Fritsch, Christopher Wool, Robert Gober, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and others. A recent acquisition has been the multimedia work Western Union: Small Boats by Isaac Julien.

The new museum is located in Munich’s art district with the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek, the Pinakothek der Moderne, the Glyptotek, and the Antiquities Collection. It has been designed by the Berlin architects Sauerbruch Hutton and is clad in 36’000 glazed ceramic rods in 23 different colors. The Museum Brandhorst features innovative lighting technology and an ecologically conceived climate-control system.

In this video features atmospheric shots from the inauguration ceremony of the Museum Brandhorst and excerpts from an interview with the Director of the Brandhorst Collection, Prof. Dr. Armin Zweite, and the Deputy Director General of the Bayerische Gemäldesammlungen, Prof. Dr. Carla Schulz-Hoffmann, who talk about Museum Brandhorst’s architecture, the origins of the Brandhorst Collection, and the partnership between the Udo and Anette Brandhorst Collection and the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen. View the full-length version of the interview after the jump.

Warhol TV / La Maison Rouge, Paris

Until the 3rd May, La Maison Rouge in Paris presents an exhibition about Andy Warhol’s ventures in the world of television: Warhol TV. Curated by Judith Benhamou-Huet, the show zaps through Andy Warhol’s TV universe. For Andy Warhol, television was an ideal tool for artistic, social, and self-promotion.

As early as 1964 Andy Warhol made an imitation soap opera. At the beginning of the 70s, Warhol played around at producing telenovelas that were the reflection of his aesthetic and fantastical universe. In 1979 Andy Warhol put together a small team who were in charge of creating TV programs to be aired on the brand-new New York Cable. They created Andy Warhol’s Fashion, a talk show devoted to the world of fashion, followed by Andy Warhol’s TV, a Factory style reality-TV show, before producing the famous Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes for MTV, inspired by his renowned quote on the subject of fame. In 1987, the TV broadcast of Andy Warhol’s funeral service became the tragic final chapter in the life of Andy Warhol.
Besides his own shows he regularly made guest appearances on other programs, including The Love Boat. Warhol also produced a TV commercial for Schrafft’s Restaurants in New York City, for an ice cream dessert titled the Underground Sundae.

In this video by Christophe Ecoffet, curator Judith Benhamou-Huet talks about the concept of the exhibition and Andy Warhol’s television projects.

La Maison Rouge was created on the initiative of French art collector Antoine de Galbert. La Maison Rouge is a registered foundation that shows three to six exhibitions a year. Solo shows alternate with thematic shows alongside regular exhibitions of major international collections.
