Osage Kwun Tong, Hong Kong
In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the death of Andy Warhol arguably the most influential artist of the late 20th century a select number of his films are on exhibit for the first time in Southeast Asia. Curated by artist Yason Banal and Geralyn Huxley, curator of film & video at The Andy Warhol Museum, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s seminal motion and moving pictures, from his structuralist masterpieces Empire, Sleep and Chelsea Girls to the conceptual experiments in portraiture such as the Screen Tests, Blow Job and Outer and Inner Space, as well as explorations into narrative, celebrity and archive via Imitation of Christ, Henry Geldzahler and Factory Diaries. The installation Silver Clouds, traversing cinema and sculpture, performance and philosophy, hovers above the exhibition.
