Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 03/28/2021
Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms. Warhol’s focus extended well beyond his famous obsessions with commercialism, celebrity, and glamour. Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop features a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985.

Filmmaker, photographer, painter, commercial illustrator, music producer, writer and even fashion model—Andy Warhol was a true radical in his approach to art. The breadth and significance of his influence has made him one of the most important artists of the 20th century. He challenged traditional boundaries of art practice, blurring the lines between art, business, and life. 

This exhibition features selections from Warhol’s forty-year span of work in the art of photographic silkscreen printmaking. While many of the works were made in the 1970s and 1980s, their subject matter—iconic people, trends, and issues—reflects his decades-long process of mirroring popular American culture. Warhol transforms photographic imagery, from rather mundane still lifes of fruits to portraits of comic characters and endangered species, through color, design, form, and multiples. Due to the infinite possibilities of printmaking, Warhol’s portfolios contain a vast array of techniques, ranging from collage and drawing to the use of “diamond dust” and color variation.
