Members-Only Event ($100+ Level) – Andy Warhol from A to B and Back Again
Few American artists are as ever-present and recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Warhol arrived in the Village 70 years ago, in 1949. Through his carefully cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, Warhol saw the growing power of images in contemporary life and expanded the role of the artist in society. This exhibition 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. Explore the artworks on this special tour with one of the Whitney’s educational staff.
