About the Exhibition
Andy Warhol drew inspiration from images of popular culture and consumerism and was a leading figure of New York City’s Pop Art movement starting from the early 1960s. This exhibition is the first major Warhol exhibition in Kyoto and the first largescale Warhol solo exhibition in Japan in nearly six years. It presents works exclusively from the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and includes early works from the 1950s when Warhol worked as a commercial illustrator, iconic 1960s canvas paintings such as the Death and Disaster series, underground films and television shows, commissioned celebrity portraits, and works from Warhol’s later years that touched upon his Catholicism and further entrenched his fame. Featuring over 200 items, portraying both the light and dark sides of massconsumer society, the exhibition sheds light on the complexity of Warhol.
