Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop | Works from the Bank of America Collection

October 25, 2020–March 28th, 2021

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much-discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense of the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms. Warhol’s focus extended well beyond his famous obsessions with commercialism, celebrity, and glamour. Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop features a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985.

“The 613” – Archie Rand

Coming 2021

“The 613” explores both traditions of biblical interpretation and of artistic expression. Interrogation is a common strategy among the individual panels, as the images may underscore, contradict, and very often obscure the teachings of the referenced commandments. Quoting masterworks by artists such as Paul Cézanne and Edouard Manet and enlisting imagery from Jewish comic artists, Rand interweaves visual culture and Scripture which, ironically, has been interpreted historically to forbid the creation of idols, images, and even art more broadly.
