CHICAGO: ANDY WARHOL—FROM A TO B AND BACK AGAIN
It’s a stunning selection of some 400 works by the Master of Pop Art which reflect the central role that Warhol played in the culture of society starting in the 1960s’ . As well as his iconic masterpiece portraits of that period, the Exhibit also represents his early beginnings as well the significant work in the later part of his career before his untimely death in 1987 at the age of 58.
His major contribution to this country’s culture overshadows so many other talents of the same period, and this Exhibition is a fitting tribute to one of the queerest artists of all time.

LONDON: ANDY WARHOL
In its announcement for its new major Warhol Retrospective for 2020, the Tate Gallery placed great emphasis of the fact the Exhibit will feature Warhol’s portraits of New York drag queens and trans women in a show that aims to find new angles on the iconic American artist . The 25 paintings are from the less well-known 1970s series “Ladies and Gentlemen.”
There will plenty of his famous pieces on show but Tate Modern director Frances Morris told the AP the exhibition will take “a more human and personal look” at Warhol. The gallery says the exhibition highlights his private beliefs and background as a “shy, gay man from a religious, migrant, low-income household.”
