PITTSBURGH, PA.- The Andy Warhol Museum
announces Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years. The exhibition features approximately 145 works of art, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, and films.
For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence. Through approximately 45 works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some 60 other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol's paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work.
Warhols interest in consumer goods, pop culture, appropriation, filmmaking, magazine publishing, and design is highlighted through the work of 60 artists including Deborah Kass, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons, Robert Mapplethorpe, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Christopher Makos, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman and more. The exhibition has been installed on floors 7, 5, 4, and 2 at The Warhol.
Shiner states, Regarding Warhol is a first for Pittsburgh and The Warhol. Never before has such a world-class collection of masterpieces by the best contemporary artists of the past 50 years been assembled here, and we are thrilled to share these amazing works with our visitors. We are equally excited to show Warhol's vast influence on contemporary artists and their work. Visitors to the exhibition will see first-hand how the artists included in the show reference, critique and celebrate Warhol in their own work, thus firmly establishing Warhol as the bellwether of the
contemporary art world.
Organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, with major loans from the collection of The Warhol, Regarding Warhol has been installed throughout the museum and reveal Warhols extraordinary impact on contemporary art production. Eric Shiner, director, is the curator of Regarding Warhol at The Warhol. Mark Rosenthal, guest curator, Marla Prather, curator, and Ian Alteveer, assistant curator, department of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art curated the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
