I noticed these Andy Warhol posters appearing in nearly every monochromatic Scandinavian interior I was drawn to. After a little research I discovered these posters even had an incredible story. They were created for Andy Warhol’s first European solo show in 1968 at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm – one of my favorite galleries. They’re essentially responsible for creating one of Warhols most well-known quotes, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”
Ten quotations were used to create the iconic exhibition poster series, designed by John Melin in his characteristic typographic style, which I love. Today these posters can only be purchased in-person at the Moderna Museet stores in both Stockholm and Malmö. As we won’t be back in our beloved Scandinavia anytime soon, I’m very lucky our wonderful friend Sofia is going to help us out!
Update: We ended up getting some of these posters, which you can see in our New York apartment!
