Shadows

Opened January 26, 2019
Dia:Beacon, New York
www.diaart.org

Andy Warhol’s Shadows (1978–79) was first presented by Dia in 1979. A single painting in multiple parts, Shadows is one of Warhol’s most abstract works, yet one that cohesively synthesizes key elements of his practice, including film, painting, photography, and screen printing. The installation surrounds the viewer with a series of canvases, presented edge-to-edge around the perimeter of the room, in conformity with Warhol’s original vision. Most recently the work was installed by Dia at the Calvin Klein Headquarters in New York.

Andy Warhol
From A to B and Back Again

May 19–September 2, 2019
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
www.sfmoma.org

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 has traveled from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

Graphic Revolution
American Prints 1960 to Now

November 11, 2018–February 3, 2019
Saint Louis Art Museum
www.slam.org

Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now examines the transformational decade of the 1960s through the early twenty-first century. The explosion of printmaking activity that began in the United States in the 1960s stands out for the radical spirit of exploration and experimentation that amplified the possibilities of contemporary art. Often in collaboration with technically proficient and market-savvy printers and publishers, artists have long been reimagining what a print can be and using printmaking to push the boundaries of historical and popular imagery by engaging with contemporary issues and new technologies. The exhibition features more than 110 works by a diverse group of artists whose visual imagery helped define the spirit of their respective times. Work by Ellen Gallagher and Andy Warhol is included.

In celebration of Dada’s one hundredth anniversary in 2016 and the centennial of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain in 2017, this exhibition examines how artists have incorporated commonplace household items into their work, removing these objects from the context of the home in ways that subvert the experiences of daily life.

Elements of Vogue
A Case Study of Radical Performance

November 17, 2017–May 6, 2018
Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid
ca2m.org

This exhibition will investigate how minorities use their bodies to produce dissident forms of beauty, subjectivity, and desire. These minor poetics are perceived as a threat to the normative world, and yet craved by mainstream culture. Paying attention to the cultural debates, conflicts, and struggles that surround voguing as a case study of radical performance, Elements of Vogue will address the complexity of these dynamics of assimilation and resistance. Work by Ellen Gallagher and Andy Warhol will be included.

The Face: A Search for Clues

We encounter human faces in personal interaction but also on the Internet, in the memory of digital cameras and smartphones, in databases of institutions, on posters, cinema walls, and TV screens. This exhibition explores the relationship between the face and society, and whether it is a commodity, a data set, or a central reference point that connects people. Work by Cindy Sherman, Taryn Simon, and Andy Warhol is included.

A gloomy and at the same time provoking parallel world unfolds in the exhibition space, in which works from the Museum für Moderne Kunst’s collection become protagonists of a narrative and enter into a dialogue with one another.

Some Aesthetic Decisions
A Centennial Celebration of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain

One hundred years ago, Marcel Duchamp forever changed the nature of art when he submitted Fountain, a porcelain urinal, to the Society of Independent Artists exhibition in New York. The subsequent rejection of Duchamp’s Fountain by the exhibition’s organizers ignited a controversy that continues today about the definition of art. This exhibition includes work by Jeff Koons, Richard Phillips, Andy Warhol, and others.
