Neuberger Museum’s exhibition focuses on the complexity behind Warhol’s technique of repeating images
Unique aspects of Andy Warhol’s work examined in Warhol x 5 by five museums in the Hudson Valley in overlapping exhibitions during the past year
July 22 – December 23, 2018
Andy Warhol is arguably one of the most iconic artists of his time. Mention his name and soup cans, Coke bottles, Mao and Marilyn immediately come to mind. By making the production of art inseparable from its marketing, Warhol helped transform popular culture into an art movement. Yet, because his work is so accessible and recognizable, its complexity and sophistication often elude.
To bring that complexity into focus, the Neuberger Museum of Art has organized Andy Warhol: Subject and Seriality, a new exhibition opening on July 22, in which Warhol’s method of repeating images of his subjects in various and multiple ways – concurrently and across time, and in diverse media – is explored. Included are the artist’s prints, photographs, and multiples, created between the 1960s and 1980s, that come from the Neuberger Museum of Art’s own collection and those of four other Hudson Valley museums, and various galleries and foundations. The exhibition is the last of a collaborative effort known as Warhol x 5 in which the five museums each examined unique aspects of the artist’s iconic approach to his subject matter.
