Update March 26: Due to coronavirus crisis, the organizer announced that the exhibition is postponed to run from July 2 through October 18.
The original king of pop art who elevated commercial branding to the gallery wall is coming to a Bangkok gallery for a three-month show.
May through August July through October, Andy Warhol Pop Art will feature a private collection of 128 of Warhol’s works – all originals – at RCB Gallery, a contemporary art venue on the second floor of River City Bangkok.
“Never before has an international exhibition of this scale and stature been shown in Thailand,” River City Bangkok wrote Saturday in its announcement.
Warhol was an American artist who became a leading figure of the 1960s visual art movement aka “Pop Art.” Some of his best known works are silkscreen paintings of Campbell’s Soup Cans, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.
