Andy Warhol has exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art. For decades, critics have observed this phenomenon but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence. Through approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some sixty other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol's paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work. What emerges is a fascinating dialogue between works of art and artists across generations. Organised by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (closing 31 December 2012) with major loans from the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum, Regarding Warhol is installed throughout the NY museum and reveals Warhol’s extraordinary impact on contemporary art production. The exhibition will continue onto The Andy Warhol Museum inPittsburgh until 28 April 2013.
