Travel back to the 1960’s with Milton Fine Curator of Art Jessica Beck as your tour guide. She’ll dive into the Andy Warhol Museum's upcoming exhibition Marisol and Warhol Take New York, and share insider stories of what it takes to bring an art exhibition to life.
Marisol and Warhol Take New York will chart the emergence of Marisol Escobar (1930–2016) and Andy Warhol (1928–1987) in New York during the dawn of Pop art in the early 1960s. The exhibition explores the artists’ parallel rises to success, the formation of their artistic personas, their savvy navigation of gallery relationships, and the blossoming of their early artistic practices from 1960 to 1968. The exhibition features key loans of Marisol’s work from major global collections, along with iconic works and rarely seen films and archival materials from The Andy Warhol Museum’s collection.
