Andy Warhol: Moderna Museet

Regular price Regular price $1,500

This early and extensively illustrated exhibition catalogue was produced on the occasion of Andy Warhol’s 1968 exhibition at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the artist’s first major museum presentation outside of the United States. The retrospective exhibition featured some of Warhol’s most famous motifs—Marilyn Monroe, flowers, the electric chair, Brillo boxes—and its unconventional installation, which included covering the museum’s façade with the artist’s now-famous cow wallpaper, offered the public an unforgettable experience.

Edited by Warhol, Kasper König, Pontus Hultén, and Olle Granath, the publication contains copious illustrations of Warhol’s work, as well as over three hundred black-and-white photographs that capture the artist’s life in the late 1960s by photographers such as Rudolph Burckhardt, Billy Name, Eric Pollitzer, John D. Schiff, and Stephen Shore.

In lieu of essays, the catalogue contains a selection of short quotes by Warhol, published in both English and Swedish. This is where Warhol’s arguably most famous statement was first seen in print: “In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.”
