An exhibition about an exhibition, such a very Warholian thing to do. Andy Warhol’s first solo exhibition at a museum was actually at Moderna Museet in 1968, and this exhibition fifty years later looks back upon it, both at the exhibition itself and at the reaction of the Swedish art world to the antics of the American pop artist. It also explores the status of Warhol’s work – was he a revolutionary or a superficial attention-seeking brat? – in the context of the year 1968 itself, the year of revolutions and of course, when Warhol himself was shot by Valerie Solanas.
