People Are Beautiful: Prints, Photographs, and Films by Andy Warhol
Sunday, January 28, 2018Time
Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Project Gallery
People are Beautiful, a new exhibition of close to 100 rarely seen works by Andy Warhol, explores shifting notions of beauty in the artist's portraits from 1964 to 1985. Warhol redefined the term 'beautiful' and its parameters over and over during his lifetime (1928 - 1987). People are Beautiful focuses entirely on portraits and investigates such themes as Celebrity and Stardom; The Patron-Artist Relationship; Fashion, Models, and the Party Scene; "Most Beautiful" Screen Tests; and Ladies and Gentlemen. This exhibition is part of Warhol x 5, a series of exhibitions in 2018 organized by the academic art museums in the region and drawing upon each other's collections. Each museum focuses on a different theme, and all the exhibitions feature works donated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. People are Beautiful is supported by the Hoene Hoy Photography Endowment and the Evelyn Metzger Exhibition Fund.
