Warhol vs Arman


This is a must see show at Espace Culturel in Mougins. Very intimate and curated beautifully. It's funny but because we are so accustomed to seeing Warhol and Warhol inspired images around us that it's easy to forget the power of seeing some of the original prints up close - the over printing - the textures of the black blocks for instance over printed by screen on the large Mick Jagger prints on show here .. and the Warhol works here juxtaposed with some of Arman's musical instrument sculptures - just great. It's a very small gallery but it's organisation and utilisation of space for this show is wonderful. Try and see it.
