“If I ever have to cast an acting role, I want the wrong person for the part… it's more satisfying to get someone who’s perfectly wrong.” Warhol on casting The Life of Juanita Castro
El Sexto's carnival-like event PORK is a raucous display of paintings and drawings, live music by Porno para Ricardo and a specially planned live performance by the artist himself, involving two live pigs . For followers of the artist, the long-awaited controversial pig performance has been building up for over a year. El Sexto was previously arrested for attempting Rebelion en la Gran ( Animal Farm ) on December 25th 2014, and later had it cancelled by being denied a US visa during Art Basel.
Director Steven Pollock is a second-generation art dealer from a family of New York gallerists. From his uncle Lou’s Peridot Gallery, presenting Jackson Pollock, Louis Bourgeois, Philip Guston and Medardo Rosso in the 1950s to Warhol, Banksy, Melgaard and now Cuban Art-star Danilo Maldonado EL SEXTO in 2016, the Pollock name is synonymous with quality art first.
Established in 1998 from a modern house in Primrose Hill, Pollock Fine Art has been behind the scenes working directly with private collectors as well as top galleries worldwide.
Selected exhibitions include Warhol vs Banksy, Andy Warhol’s first and second commercial gallery show in Norway, Peter Blake print survey, controversial Bjarne Melgaard’s first UK exhibition and El Sexto in Miami. The Warhol vs Banksy exhibition boasted 15,000 visitors in three weeks and equally overwhelming worldwide press.
