If 2012 saw museums like the Walker and the New Museum embrace the medium of the internet with redesigned websites and social media presences, 2013 might signal a renaissance for museums and multimedia. Both the Getty and the Metropolitan Museum have just launched new photo and video initiatives.
Andy Warhol’s artwork tends to elicit strong reactions, whether it’s love in the form of poster-buying, hate in the form of getting angry at gallery installations or boredom, displayed by just not going to Warhol exhibitions at all. I happen to like Warhol’s art, although until recently, I had only ever seen his prints and paintings. A new exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, called Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures shows a new side to an artist who often gets pigeonholed as a screenprinter of soup cans.
