"Andy Warhol : 15 minutes eternal " Exhibition Reception

I went to the opening of Andy Warhol's,15 Minutes Eternal exhibition at Mori Art Gallery. 
A collaboration with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pitsburg,It is the largest ever collection of Warhol to tour Asia.700 works and archives from the start of his career to his final years.It was fantastic to see his illustrations,photographs and prints in large scale.

I enjoyed reading about his printing technique and viewing the details of his prints in closer detail.  I have only seen most of his work in books,so seeing the large collection of  Warhol's work in it's true size was incredible. 

I really love Y.M.O . The first time I saw Y.M.O perform was in 2012,I did not think I would ever get the chance to see them play.It was great to see the Ryuichi Sakamoto portrait ,I had no idea it would be so big ! I really love Y.M.O's aesthetic in their video clips,album art and stage design (really love the Propaganda tour '84 look)PREVIEW: YMO PROPAGANDA FILM 1984.I also really love each members collaboration with other artists and their individual projects. I have been watching this old show called "Wild Palms" and I really love the theme song .Later I learned it was composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto! I have always loved this theme song but I never knew it was composed by him until recently. 

LISTEN:WILD PALMS THEME SONG BY R.SAKAMOTO <3 very strange tv show. A surreal,sci-fi,political,melodrama.
