Liege, Feb 8 (efe-epa).- A row of Campbell’s soup cans, a wall of “Marilyns” that stare at the spectator and a sea of ??metallic clouds are some of the works that have transformed the Belgian city of Liege into a re-imagining of Andy Warhol’s studio, the famous Factory.
“People come here and think they know Warhol and then discover that there is so much more than what they knew,” says François Henrard, curator of the exhibition The American Dream Factory, part of the Warhol Festival project.
Numerous Warhol-inspired cultural events have been orbiting around the La Boverie museum in Liege since October. Its new exhibition casts an eye back at Warhol’s work from the 1950s to 1980s and brings together prize collections from museums, galleries and private collectors around the world.
Despite the fact that international tourism is under strict restrictions due to the Covid-19 health crisis, the Warhol Festival still has several workshops and concerts planned throughout the month until its end on February 28. EFE-EPA
