“Warhol: Headlines” will explore the artists’ works that he created that focused on the tabloid headlines of the day, while “Andy Warhol: Shadows” will pair 102 silkscreen canvasses “edge-to-edge” to create a cinematic view of the deviated images of shadows created in Warhol’s apartment. Both exhibits will open Sept. 25.
“Warhol: Headlines” at the National Gallery of Art presents a sensational, multi-media narrative of Warhol’s life and times,” says Molly Donovan, curator of the exhibit. “In addition to the exhibitions, Warhol On the Mall will give visitors a broader view of Warhol and his work through films, speakers, concerts, and more at the National Gallery of Art and the Hirshhorn.”
“Warhol: Headlines” will close at the National Gallery of Art on Jan. 2, 2012. “Andy Warhol: Shadows” will close at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture garden Jan. 15. For more information, visit nga.gov and hirshhorn.si.edu.
