The First Couple of Pop Art

“Marisol and Warhol Take New York” is the tallyho title of an exhibition that re-unites the two kindred weirdo spirits who became, for a brief Camelot spell, the First Couple of Pop Art. Their trajectories then diverged, and therein lies the story. Marisol Escobar, a Venezuelan born in Paris and raised in affluence, and Andy Warhol, a spindly refugee from the scruffy outskirts of Pittsburgh, first met in 1962 and immediately serenaded each other through their art. Marisol made a wooden sculpture of Andy, a cast of her hands resting demurely in his lap; Warhol in turn filmed her for a few early experimental shorts and enshrined her in one of his famous screen tests, where, unlike so many of the other fidgets in the series, she barely blinked.

East Meets West in Venice

Venice’s Fondazione Giorgio Cini is located on San Giorgio Maggiore, a small islet just opposite the entrance to the Canal Grande. There isn’t much on this patch of land. Just an old spired church, greenery, and the foundation’s complex, which looks across the lagoon to St. Mark’s Square and the Doge’s Palace. The space—43,000 square feet—has rarely been open to the public in its entirety. For three weeks, however, beginning on April 10, the Fondazione Giorgio Cini opens all its spaces to Homo Faber, a major showcase of contemporary artisans. READ ON
