"THE MECHANICAL ART"

The photograph "Double Tambourine" is included in the exhibition "Andy Warhol, The Mechanical Art" at Caixa Forum in Barcelona, September 14 to December 31, 2017. From the official site: "The exhibition presented by la Caixa Foundation and the Museo Picasso Málaga addresses the complex work of this Pittsburgh-born artist, placing particular emphasis on the changes his oeuvre underwent over the course of his career." With a special emphasis on repetition, we are delighted Nat’s work is represented by "Double Tambourine."

AGNES B, part I

It is such an honor to collaborate with legendary French designer and art patron agnes b! Agnes B. is an innovator and an inspiration in her steadfast support of artists and their work. And we love her collection of Artists’ T-shirts… which includes Nat Finkelstein.

From the official site, "Finkelstein’s photo of Edie Sedgwick, American actress, model, and Warhol muse, is part of agnes b.’s personal art collection. It was one of her first purchases as an art collector. She chose this photo to be printed on a T-shirt included in her Artists’ T-shirt collection!"

ANDY WARHOL. DARK STAR.

We are proud to contribute to the Museo Jumex exhibition, "Andy Warhol. Estrella Oscura" (June 2 - September 2, 2017). Curated by Douglas Fogle, the exhibition concept "emphasizes the utopian promises, but also the dark side of the postwar media and consumer culture." Nat Finkelstein’s signature photo, "Silver Clouds Installation, Leo Castelli Gallery," is prominent in the "Dark Star" exhibition catalogue. The catalogue essays are also stellar.

Special thanks to Museo Jumex in Mexico City. A pleasure and privilege to work with you!
