Well known figures in the American Pop Art, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg, will present their creations in this exhibition, which highlights the works of twelve distinguished artists.
“This vivid, colorful, and imaginative exhibit fulfills the Cultural Centre’s promise of bringing the best of international art experiences to India. The showcase is special not only because it traces the incredible legacy of Pop Art, but because it has an unmistakable sense of fun about it. I’m especially excited to see it strike a chord with younger audiences and foster a culture of creativity with inspirations that go beyond time and space,” said Isha Ambani.
The Art House is set to dedicate its three levels to exploring the themes of power, fame, and love, offering visitors distinctive areas to delve into each concept.
The Art House’s ultimate floor will showcase an immersive venture called “Silver Clouds,” influenced by Andy Warhol. Attendees will have the chance to interact with one of Warhol’s infrequent interactive art installations.
