At the height of Mexico's modernist period, six women separated by time, but connected by place, reflected on Mexico's rich artistic landscape. They were inspired by both local traditions and modern methods that proliferated during the country's post-revolutionary era.
Even though these women, – Clara Porset, Lola Álvarez Bravo, Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, Cynthia Sargent, and Sheila Hicks – had brief engagements with each other, their unifying body of work has never been shown together before, until now.
The Art Institute of Chicago presents an entirely new lens through which to observe modernism in midcentury Mexico. Examine the works of the six artists, ranging from furniture design, jewelry, photography, photomurals, prints, sculpture, and textiles – all rooted in an air of revolution and grounded in interdisciplinary abstraction.
No one questioned the representation of objects and people in the 21st century quite like Warhol did. Even 32 years after his death, his prolific career perforates every aspect of popular culture. Andy Warhol – From A to B and Back Again highlights the interconnectedness of mediums he used to call out the hyperreal truth of our image-laden world.
Warhol's oeuvre spanned paintings, sculptures, prints, and live mixed-media installations which anticipated the issues of our current digital age ahead of their time. Also, the attempt on Warhol's life led to experimentation, like the creation of dark, mass-production-style artworks that critiqued what Warhol saw as society's highly mechanized postmodern abyss.
Uncover more about the artist's self-deprecating philosophy as well as his ability to identify cultural patterns, and filter the representations of influential icons – before influencers and filters were even a thing.
This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
