Portraying Pregnancy: From Holbein to Social Media

January 24–April 26, 2020
Foundling Museum, London
foundlingmuseum.org.uk

Through paintings, prints, photographs, objects, and clothing from the fifteenth century to the present day, this show aims to explore the different ways in which pregnancy was, or was not, represented in art and society; how shifting social attitudes have impacted depictions of pregnant women; how the possibility of death in childbirth brought additional tension to such representations; and how more recent images, which often reflect increased female agency and empowerment, still remain highly charged. Work by Jenny Saville is included.

Andy Warhol
From A to B and Back Again

Through January 26, 2020
Art Institute of Chicago
www.artic.edu

Few American artists are as widely known and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol. This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized in the US since 1989—reconsiders his work with more than 350 works of art, many assembled together for the first time. Building on a wealth of new materials, research, and scholarship that has emerged since the artist’s untimely death in 1987, this exhibition, curated by Donna De Salvo, reveals new complexities about the Warhol we think we know, and introduces a Warhol for the twenty-first century. This exhibition originated at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
