Andy Warhol – Drawings from the 1950s //
Araki, Bailey, Close – Polaroids
15—24 mar 2013
Maastricht, The Netherlands
Daniel Blau is pleased to present two special exhibitions at TEFAF 2013. Following the very successful show at the Louisiana Museum in Denmark earlier this year, we are happy to announce a new exhibition of original drawings by Andy Warhol, many of which are now presented to the public for the first time. All of these drawings were discovered last year in Warhol’s estate. Some of them are illustrated in our comprehensive publication that finally sheds light on this neglected period in the artist’s work.
“Araki, Bailey, Close – Polaroids” will accompany our Warhol show with an exhibition of unique polaroids by three renowned contemporary artists. This innovative show ranges from a series of Planet of the Apes pictures taken in 1974 by David Bailey, to an exceptional large-format polaroid self-portrait by Chuck Close from 1979 to more recent works by Nobuyoshi Araki.
Now that Polaroid material is out of production, the inherent quality and intriguing colour scheme of the medium has become increasingly apparent. We are proud to be able to present such a high calibre selection of unique photographs by these pioneers and masters of Polaroid technology.
