Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman
American Art from the Albertina Museum
Opening: Mon, 18 Nov 2019, 7 pm
Exhibition period: 19 Nov 2019 - 29 March 2020
Our view of America is determined by images of the entertainment industry: from film and television to advertising and newspapers, from Hollywood icons to the cover of Time Magazine with the Electric Chair. No other nation has placed so much reliance upon the power and impact of pictures and symbols as the USA.
With over 200 works of American art from 1960 to the present day, the large-scale exhibition aims to illustrate how much our perceptions of truth and reality, facts and fake news owe to America’s visual culture and the new way of interacting with all these images. Artists from Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, Alex Katz right up to Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman accompanied and commented on this transformation of society using radically new aesthetic strategies and artistic techniques.
Exhibition by the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
