Andy Warhol Fotografier 1982
  • Artist Rooms
This poster is advertising an exhibition held at the ‘Moderna Museet’ in Stockholm, Sweden. Opening in 1982 the show featured the photographic work of Robert Frank, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol. The image used on this poster is of the fashion designer Halston clowning around. This humorous photo by Warhol was included in his 1979 publication ‘Andy Warhol’s Exposures’. A book of photographs and engaging stories about Warhol’s celebrity friends, it is an insight into how the jet set of New York lived in the late 1970s. Warhol’s humour and personality are apparent in the text. He describes Halston as the first “All-American fashion designer…Norton Simon bought his business for millions. He moved to Olympic Towers. He has an empire. And I have a factory.”
