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
Warhol’s 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 will be 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 will be installed throughout the
museum and reveal Warhol’s 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.
“PNC’s long-standing partnership with The Warhol reflects our belief in the power
of the arts to strengthen communities,” said Donna Peterman, PNC executive vice
president and chief communications officer. “As Andy is one of the most iconic and
influential artists of the 20th century, we are pleased to help bring Regarding
Warhol, which explores the full extent of Warhol’s influence, to Pittsburgh.”
