Forever Andy! 

An amazing opening has been attracting people, tourists and especially fashion lovers in Paris these days. The Musée d’Art Moderne presents Unlimited, a large exhibition dedicated to the renowned American artist Andy Warhol (1928-1987). 

Comprising over 200 works, Unlimited highlights the serial side of the Warhol oeuvre, a crucial aspect of his work, and his ability to rethink the way art should be exhibited.

Housed at the Dia Art Foundation, Shadows is a striking group of 102 silkscreened canvases of 17 different colours whose length totals more than 130 metres. Asked if these pictures were art, Warhol said no: “You see, the opening party had disco. I guess that makes them disco décor." 

His art represents a challenge which the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris extends to include series like the Electric Chairs (1964–1971), the Jackies (1964), the Flowers (1964–1965) and the Maos (1972–1973).
