The Andy Warhol Temporary Museum

The Temporary Andy Warhol Museum is a cultural space within a commercial space. It was designed to host the exhibition ‘Andy Warhol – Icons | Psaier Artworks and the Factory’, which was opened between April 11 and July 11, in Colombo Shopping Mall, in Lisbon, and showcased a total of 32 original works by the American artist.

The space, set in the central plaza of the mall, is all made from the use of 1,500 metal paint cans, that evoke Warhol’s own Campbell Soup Cans, and assumes an iconographic character with clear inspiration from the Pop Art.

The museological space avoids the idea of having neutral white exhibition spaces and relates to the exhibited artworks through the creation of a strong visual context that uses the artist’s imaginary. The museum recreates an environment that is both pop and industrial, through an unusual materiality resulting from the use of metal paint cans.

The expository structure, set in the central plaza of the mall, features an abstract exterior that is extremely appealing and assumes an iconographic character with clear links to the Pop Art.

The interior was designed as an enclosed introspective space, entirely defined by continuous walls, benefiting from a transparent cover in plastic screen. This cover has the dual function of allowing light to enter from the exterior and assuring the visual relationship between the two confronting spaces (museum/shopping mall). This solution captures the curiosity of visitors, calling for a visit to all those wandering in the higher galleries of the commercial space.
