TEL AVIV.- The Tel Aviv Museum of Art presents major works by five artists from the Mugrabi Collection. A significant part of this exhibition is devoted to the works of Andy Warhol, whose ideas and artistic practice continue to have a decisive impact on the contemporary art scene. The exhibition features iconic works by Warhol, including his painting of a Coca-Cola bottle and portraits of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, Elvis Presley, and the Chinese leader Mao Zedong, which reveal Warhol's fascination with fame, glamour, and power. The exhibition contains several of Warhol's late works, including two monumental works from the series "The Last Supper" in which he appropriated Leonardo da Vinci's fresco, as well as mesmerizing self-portraits. Most of the works were executed in Warhol's unique technique – a combination of painting and photographic silkscreen printing.

Tom Wesselmann is represented by a still life of products and objects found in many American homes, alongside paintings of stereotypical female nudes that border on abstraction. In the 1960s, Warhol and Wesselmann were among the pioneers of Pop art, basing their works on a non-hierarchical choice of images culled from the world of American consumer society, the mass media, and advertising.

The exhibition includes key examples of Jean-Michel Basquiat, active in the 1980s. His art is an expressive weave of textual quotations, painting, drawing and squiggles inspired by various sources, and infused with a range of autobiographical, historical and multi-cultural associations.

Consumer culture and artmaking continue to be relevant topics today and are being reexamined in a critical, disillusioned manner: Richard Prince raises questions concerning authenticity by appropriating, recycling, duplicating and manipulating existing images. Adam McEwen transforms familiar banal objects into highly charged and estranged artifacts by reproducing them in an unexpected material.
