Description

Everyone has their own Andy Warhol –an elusive figure, the artist is virtually synonymous with American popular culture of the late 20th century. Remarkably, Warhol continues to inform our contemporary moment through his prescient, uncanny grasp of the drama and consequences of capitalism on the American psyche. Steeped in the vernacular of celebrity, propelled by aspirational consumerism, image-driven, and bound together by new forms of media: Warhol tapped into the crux of American culture.This museum-wide survey exhibition focuses on the biographical underpinnings of Warhol’s practice and specifically expands on the less exposed aspects of his work and persona. Andy Warhol: Lifetimes casts a queer lens over the artist, positioning him as an outsider and disruptor who remade America’s image to resonate within a queer sensibility. This more intimate portrayal of the artist examines the spectral persona Warhol created to transcend the personal, to engage the self as a cultural myth, mirror, and decoder.
