Andy Warhol: Moderna Mus?et Exhibition Catalog(202 views)
Description: FIRST EDITION, profusely illustrated with full-page black and white photographs. Warhol?s Moderna Mus?et catalog ?is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist's-book, a form that ostensibly began with the Dadaists and Surrealists, and is produced with some of the roughest reproductions ever seen, which are entirely appropriate, and supplemented by a long section of Factory snapshots by Billy Name. The genre was revitalized by the Pop movement, and Warhol in particular, which demonstrates his position as a latter-day Dadaist. The Moderna Museet publication especially had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s, particularly the photobooks of the Provoke era? (Parr and Badger, Vol II). Published by Moderna Mus?et, Sweden, in 1968 as an exhibition catalogue for the show "Andy Warhol" at the Moderna Mus?et in Stockholm, February - March, 1968. Stockholm: Moderna Mus?et, 1968. Quarto (approx. 8.5 x 10.5 in.), original illustrated paper wrappers. Small piece of tape at top of spine; superficial split at center of glue binding (as often), everything holding. An outstanding copy of a fragile book that is extremely prone to wear.
