A homage to a group of artists who lived a unique moment, a genuine phase of history which will never be repeated, an era of changes and movements which made of New York a sacred place with a different and modern vision that impacted in all global changes which appeared aftermath.
The city of New York during the 80 ́s and 90 ́s was a creative incubator, a city where artist knew and admire each other and where they wanted to stand above the crowd in a period of constant creation in all senses. During these years Street Art, Neo-Pop or the so called “Pictures Generation” movements flourished. Artists merged with fashion, advertisement, cinema and music, among other fields.
The exhibition AMERICAN COOL gathers works from those artists that were the idols of that era like Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Donald Sultan, John Baldessari, Ross Bleckner, Cindy Sherman, Robert Mappelthorpe and David Salle.
