Andy Warhol’s oeuvre, famous around the world, has not yet given up all its secrets. With the exhibition Time Capsules, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Marseille has chosen to unveil a new facet of this giant of pop art.

The Time Capsules are small boxes in which Andy Warhol gathered his personal memories. Drawings, letters, photographs, books... The artist filled 612 cartons during his life. Guided by the songs on “Songs for Drella,” an album composed by Lou Reed and John Cale in homage to Andy Warhol, the MAC has selected just eight.

To the rhythm of the songs of these artists, who personally knew Warhol, visitors immerse themselves in the very unusual world of this brilliant artist. They rediscover this both illustrious and little known character and meet, via the contents of each box, the private Warhol.

These Time Capsules were lent to the MAC Marseille by the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the city where the artist was born in 1928. These priceless artifacts allow Warhol’s memories and artwork to travel through space, but also time.
