Pop Art Amsterdam
Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art Amsteram turning to real life
Imagine yourself walking through the city of Amsterdam. You go along the beautiful channels and watch the old houses pass by, but what is that…?
Seems like colourful points are moving through the city and you have just spotted them. While coming closer you notice it is a human being, but hold on: Somehow the human being looks like it has just jumped straight out of a comic. It is a young lady with a skin covered all over with dots. She has big blue eyes and her hair is of a bright yellow. Mysterious… She wears a red polka dot dress that shines in a bright red from afar. What could that be? You get closer and have the feeling like you’ve recognised her. That you kind of know her. You think again and then it all is crashing to your mind:
“This is Roy Lichtenstein! You know that lady from a painting!”
You look again and there is a second lady standing there. Her hair is of a shiny red. She is pointing out to something and smiling. You look to where she is pointing to and now you see a huge poster of the Moco Museum. There you see it written: ‘Roy Lichtenstein – Lasting Influence’. Now you know what is going on. You have just stumbled into a film set of our Roy Lichtenstein commercial for the Moco Museum, Amsterdam.
Something like this could have happened when you walked around the city center. Two of our Moco girls were turning into real life Roy Lichtenstein figures and were filmed for six short clips to promote our new exhibition. Come visit and enjoy modern and contemporary art in Amsterdam with pop art including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
