Hong Kong Museum of Art Andy Warhol exhibition greets 200,000th visitor

Hong Kong Museum of Art Andy Warhol exhibition greets 200,000th visitor
March 14, 2013

Currently on show at the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the 'Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal' exhibition has, in addition to many accolades, this week welcomed its 200,000th visitor.

Regarded as a not-to-be-missed event by art lovers, the exhibition, which opened on 16th December last year, has been well received by the public, attracting an average daily attendance of 2,700 visitors, and with a peak single-day attendance of 5,300 visitors.

Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Andy Warhol Museum, the exhibition has been organised by the Andy Warhol Museum in collaboration with the Hong Kong Museum of Art, with BNY Mellon as the lead sponsor.

The exhibition is also supported by other sponsors including Christie's, the Economist, and Bloomberg as the media sponsor. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust is the sponsor of the exhibition's art appreciation program.

Regarded as Asia's largest touring exhibition on the works of Andy Warhol, the exhibition showcases more than 400 artworks from the Andy Warhol Museum. Spanning the period from the 1950s to the 1980s, these works, including paintings, drawings, photographs, screen prints, sculptures and films and videos, vividly depict Warhol's artistic life.

Self-portraits, as well as portraits of celebrities taken by Warhol using a Polaroid camera, are also on display, offering visitors a golden opportunity to appreciate in one go the representative works created by Warhol at different stages of his life.

Hong Kong Director of the Leisure and Cultural Services Betty Fung and BNY Mellon Asia Pacific (the exhibition's lead sponsor) Chairman Steve Lackey were at the Hong Kong Museum of Art to greet the 200,000th visitor and present them with a special souvenir pack.

The exhibition closes on 31st March.

The Hong Kong Museum of Art is located at 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.
