Head to Paris for a unique exhibition of modern art

The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris’s modern art museum, is full of experimental offerings from the likes of Matisse, Dalí and other European big guns, but this autumn there’ll be an American in Paris joining them: (literal) Pop Art icon Andy Warhol. The museum’s new exhibition ‘Warhol Unlimited’ features more than 200 works of his spanning nearly 20 years, including the centrepiece Shadows – on its first ever showing outside America. A series of 102 silk-screened canvases featuring abstract prints of shadows in a vivid palette of colours, the work is more than 130 metres long. From portraits of Jackie O and Mao Zedong to the artist himself (below), there are more signature screenprints on display – though the exhibition also spans less famed work: silent ‘screen tests’ of his Factory friends and celebrities, his eight-hour long film on the Empire State Building, Empire, extravagant sets for Velvet Underground gigs, and the larger-than-life Brillo Boxes installation, for example. Look out, too, for the playful Silver Clouds, a room filled with floating metallic balloons.
