Andy Warhol is a talent beyond pop art, often picking up his 35mm Minox camera to capture photographs of his daily surroundings, fascinations, and moments. Ever an opportunist, having a camera in hand enabled Warhol to capture now-iconic imagery, of which more than 40 are now on display at the Voyages avec Warhol exhibition, presented by Château La Coste in collaboration with Hedges Projects.
Curated from the James R. Hedges, IV Collection, the collection includes imagery spotlighting dear friends of Warhol’s, like Halston, Dolly Parton, and Keith Haring. Likewise, we find lesser-known examples in the artist’s oeuvre, showcasing the interiors of cars he may have found or traveled in, airplanes, hotel lobby chandeliers and seedy toilets, as well as many examples from Warhol’s “Sex Parts and Torsos” collection examining the nude male form.
Voyages avec Warhol, which comes in conjunction with Rencontres d’Arles festival, is open to the public at La Bastide Gallery until September 10, 2023.
