Andy Warhol Club

13 January 2007 - The Andy Warhol exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum has been postponed to 12 October. However, an Andy Warhol Club will be launched on 22 February, the twentieth anniversary of the death of the artist.

According to NRC Handelsblad, the exhibition has been postponed because more time is needed for the preparations. “The exhibition would originally only deal with Warhol’s movies, but the museum has now decided to exhibit paintings, installations and other work as well”.

Incidentally, the museum announced as early as last summer that it would be an exhibition using ‘a diversity of media’ to provide insight in the thought of Andy Warhol.

Under 35s can soon become a member of the Andy Warhol Club at the price of an entrance fee. They can visit the exhibition as often as they want and will receive additional information. The museum will visit parties to recruit members. In addition, a website will be launched.

NRC Handelsblad further reports that the Stedelijk according to its sponsor contract with ABN Amro must organise a large exhibition with over 50,000 visitors every year. In 2006, it organised the Airworld exhibition on airline culture, drawing 60,000 visitors. The 2007 blockbuster was to be the Andy Warhol exhibition.

According to a museum spokesperson, the fact that the exhibition has been postponed poses no problem. “What matters is that the exhibition attracts 50,000 visitors, this need not necessarily happen in 2007”.
