Exibition Andy Warhol Summer Pop Capri
29 July – 10 September 2016
An exhibition of Andy Warhol comes for the first time on the island, in the middle of the inner city, few metres from the Piazzetta, with the title “Andy Warhol. Summer Pop Capri”, after the great success achieved in Milan.
In the name of the continuity of an exhibition program that has always presented some of the most important works of the father of the Pop Art, the AICA | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art Gallery, which has become a reference point for the lovers of the “Popular Art”, exhibits around thirty works by Andy Warhol, in order to get a wider view on his production, focusing not only on the most famous silkscreen printings, but also on some artworks, often unavailable on the Italian market and extremely rare , coming from important international collections, both publics and privates.
In the exhibition in Capri, there are, among the centerpieces, Uncle Sam (1981), Marylin, Camouflage and Vesuvius (1985), this last was born thanks to the meeting between Warhol and Lucio Amelio and it has become one of the most loved icons of the city.
And, in tribute to the Isle of Capri, an Andy Warhol’s work is exhibited at Villa Lysis. The initiative was made possible thanks to a partnership with the Cultural Association Apeiron with the patronage of the City of Capri.
In the entrance hall of the majestic Villa Lysis, location so beloved by Lucio Amelio, who was one of the greatest supporter of the restoration of the monument, is exhibited a wonderful charcoal drawing made by Warhol. The work is dated 1978 and follows a photograph of the end of the ‘800, made by the great German photographer Wilhelm Von Gloeden; he was so appreciated by the Neapolitan art dealer, that he dedicated an exhibition to Von Gloeden, and today, this work comes to Villa Lysis. Also this artwork will be shown for all exhibition period in this extraordinary and unique location.
