Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again @ SFMOMA
Complimentary admission and tour led by curators Rachel Jans, AM'06, PhD'14, and Marin Sarve-Tarr, AM'17, PhD'17. Space is limited - RSVP today!
Think you know all you want to know about Andy Warhol? From his ubiquitous Pop Art silkscreens of consumer products and his multi-image celebrity portraits (Triple Elvises) – the first galleries in this exhibition have all of these and many other Pop images.
But - do you know how the artist’s first career in creating ads for a shoe manufacturer, and as an illustrator for Glamour magazine shaped his early Pop work and set him on the path to becoming the best-known artist of his generation? Would you even recognize his later work which ranges from his playful “Cow Wallpaper” through his dark, highly introspective examinations of violence and the ways in which gay and transgender people were forced to live in society’s shadows?
This 300-piece exhibit, the first US retrospective of the artist in 30 years, provides highlights of all phases of the enigmatic artist’s career, including a selection of his sculptures, photographs, films and television productions. It explains the changes in Warhol’s life that led to these shifts and how his work has shaped that of dozens of younger artists and filmmakers.
Please join us on an exclusive tour of this acclaimed exhibition. We are thrilled to announce that it will be led by UChicago’s very own Rachel Jans, AM'06, PhD'14, and Marin Sarvé-Tarr, AM'17, PhD'17. They are both assistant curators at SFMOMA.
The tour will last one hour. After the tour, please enjoy the rest of your evening exploring the the museum; it's open until 9 p.m.
Please meet at 5:45 p.m. (no late-comers!) on the second floor at the top of the museum's back entry steps, past the ticket desks to the right. Event co-host Tom Kucharvy, AM’80, will distribute tickets.
