Athlete series

Another reason to visit New York soon is the new Danzig Projects exhibition. They are the host of a dazzling collection of Andy Warhol Polaroids that were initiated by art collector and friend Richard Weisman. The idea of the collection was to make a new range of paintings called the "Athlete Series". They Polaroid shots were taken to be silkscreened on to canvas as a basis for the paintings. The shots of for instance Ali, Pelé and our favorite tennis player John McEnroe show a new view on Warhol's work and his willingness to experiment. Please find all the show details here.
