Ji Chang Wook has provided the audio guide narration for the upcoming “Andy Warhol LIVE” retrospective exhibition presented by the ARTMON Art Exhibition and Design Group at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (the same venue where the Seoul Fashion Week festivities are held each year) beginning 6 June 2015 and running through 27 September 2015.
Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was a leading pioneer during the mid-to-late 20th century Pop Art Movement. This exhibition will be one of the largest displays of his artwork and mixed media pieces that are currently housed at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA).
The exhibition will present approximately 400 of Warhol’s representative works, from his early childhood through just prior to his death. Concentrating on silk-screen portraits of famous figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Mao Zedong, Michael Jackson and Muhammad Ali, Warhol is most famous for his paintings of cans of Campbell’s Soup. In addition, newly-discovered digital pieces and short films not seen in over 30 years will be on display, along with a shop where visitors may purchase replicas of Warhol’s masterpieces for their own homes.
This is a wonderful project for Ji Chang Wook to be involved with… and a great opportunity to hear his mellifluous voice in your ears while he describes these amazing pieces of art. Don’t miss it!
