Andy Warhol: Icons
May 20–September 18, 2016
Curated by Rebecca Schoenthal, Curator of Exhibitions
In 2014, The Fralin was the beneficiary of a gift of several works of art by Andy Warhol from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Among these were silkscreens from the significant series Saint Apollonia and Cowboys and Indians, both created by Warhol during the 1980s. In 2016, The Fralin is pleased to present these pieces within the entire larger series of prints, revealing the diverse range of subjects that captivated the iconic artist.
Jean Arp’s Oriforme, on long-term loan from the National Gallery of Art, exemplifies the approach to abstraction with which the artist is most closely associated; the sculpture will be on view on The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation Entrance Plaza in front of The Fralin beginning March 25, 2013.
