Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again is a brand new exhibition opening next Monday at the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. Focusing on the artists entire career, there are more than 300 pieces on display.
Few American artists are as ever-present and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Through his carefully cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, Warhol understood the growing power of images in contemporary life and helped to expand the role of the artist in society. This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized by a U.S. institution since 1989—reconsiders the work of one of the most inventive, influential, and important American artists. Building on a wealth of new materials, research and scholarship that has emerged since the artist’s untimely death in 1987, this exhibition reveals new complexities about the Warhol we think we know, and introduces a Warhol for the 21st century.
Catch the exhibition at the Whitney Museum until March 31st, 2019.
