Pop goes Art: Exhibition shows record covers created by Andy Warhol

Among other covers, Warhol designed the legendary Rolling Stones album “Sticky Fingers”

Autor: Katharina Hogrebe

From 1 September 2018 to 24 March 2019, the exhibition “Andy Warhol – Pop goes Art” will show works by the graphic designer and artist Andy Warhol from a private collection that has only now been made available to the general public. The show in the Museum of Applied Arts Cologne (MAKK) covers record covers designed and produced by Warhol, together with numerous sketches and designs by the artist. The interplay between art and music as media is documented through films, audio plays, photographs and other works by Warhol.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) played a key role in shaping the aesthetic of contemporary record cover design. For over 40 years, he produced drawings, screen prints, photographs, collages and unusual calligraphic and three-dimensional elements, and also designed album covers for internationally famous artists such as the Rolling Stones, Diana Ross and John Lennon.

Warhol was not just an artist, but also a producer: in 1967, he released the debut album by the rock band The Velvet Underground, “The Velvet Underground & Nico”. The cover of the album, which Warhol designed, shows a banana whose skin can be pulled off to reveal the pink flesh of the fruit underneath.
