Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal
[Press Release]

Press Release

Preface I

It is our great honor to work with Andy Warhol Museum to present the grand retrospective exhibition “Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal” at CAFA Art Museum to the teachers and students in CAFA, and art enthusiasts in Beijing. As the first large-scale exhibition of Andy Warhol’s lifetime works in Asia, the Exhibition, in the chronological order, systematically and comprehensively reveals Andy Warhol’s striking and splendid career life with his paintings, prints, photos, installations, films and TV plays. The audience will not only be exposed to Andy Warhol’s representative masterpieces familiar to them, but also to the creation and ideas behind the works, in addition to the works’ relationship with American artistic and social states at that time. With all the information, the audience will see a “true” Andy Warhol.

Interestingly, while Andy Warhol’s grand solo show is held, another internationally significant contemporary artist–Joseph Beuys’s exhibition is held synchronously in CAFA Art Museum. The two significant exhibitions of the two contemporary artists, known as “the most important and influential” figures in contemporary European and American cultures, encounter at CAFA Art Museum, which undoubtedly provide an important and unprecedented opportunity for Chinese art and culture circles to learn, understand and study on the structure and development of contemporary western art.

I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the Director of Andy Warhol Museum–Mr. Eric Shiner and his team for presenting us with such an excellent exhibition. Special thanks also go to China Arts and Entertainment Group for their great support, and the lead sponsor–BNY Mellon and other sponsors for their generous financial support, as well as the staff of CAFA Art Museum and all the volunteers for their hard working for the exhibition!

I hope every visitor will benefit from the exhibition.

Wang Huangsheng
Director, CAFA Art Museum
