ANDY WARHOL's Timeboxes

Modern and Contemporary Art Exhibition Center Former Central Fish Market, Trieste

Saturday July 22nd - Sunday October 22nd 2006

"What you should do is get a box for a month, and drop everything in it and at the end of the month lock it up. Then date it and send it over to Jersey".
A. Warhol, The philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and back again, London, 1975.

The act of collecting throughout time has been driven by variety of desires, from fascination, to comprehension, to obsession: collecting for the sake of it. Andy Warhol spent years documenting and cataloguing his daily existence, his collections at once becoming art as well as archive.
Beginning with the desire to simplify a move in 1974 from his Manhattan studio at 33 Union Square West to a new location at 860 Broadway, Warhol packaged anything he felt worth keeping into uniform cardboard boxes.

Afterward, he began to use these moving boxes to store the bewildering quantity of material that routinely passed through his hands. Ironically referring to these boxes as "Time Capsules", Warhol had began the very humanist pursuit of instilling a sense of order in his chaotic world. By his death in 1987, he had created over 600 Time Capsules. Like his films and audio tape recordings, the Time Capsules are a further attempt to capture time and human experience in an indiscriminate way, elevating the trivial to art and making art just another item of the detritus filed away. Their contents, like Warhol's artwork, are both illuminating and enigmatic.
More than six hundred Timecapsules from archives of the Andy Warhol Museum at Pittsburgh can be seen now in Trieste, so if ever come there before the end of October don't miss this great opportunity!
