Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris

As a setting for the first European showing of Shadows (1978-79) in their entirety, the Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris is devoting a remarkable exhibition to Andy Warhol (1928-1987). Comprising over 200 works, Unlimited highlights the serial side of the Warhol oeuvre – a crucial aspect of his work – and his ability to rethink the way art should be displayed.
Housed at the Dia Art Foundation, Shadows is a striking group of 102 silkscreened canvases of 17 different colours whose length totals more than 130 metres. These works are a commanding reminder of Warhol's flouting of art's conventions, from the conception of works through to their presentation. Asked if these pictures were art, Warhol said no: "You see, the opening party had disco. I guess that makes them disco décor."
