The October 11th opening of In Living Color: Andy Warhol and Contemporary Printmaking at the Joslyn Art Museum is featured in the Fremont Tribune. Drawn from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation and organized by the Joslyn’s Phil Willson Curator of Contemporary Art, Karin Campbell, this is the exhibit’s national premiere, after which it will travel to several museums across the country.
From the article: “Warhol once said, ‘I like boring things.’ The exhibit encompasses three decades of Warhol’s work and examines how the artist’s ‘boring things’ came to life through his vigorous use of color. The leading figure of American Pop Art, Warhol focused his attention on the social and political turbulence and unprecedented consumerism that emerged as the United States began to recover from World War II.” The show also features works from 16 other artists influenced by Warhol, including John Baldessari (pictured above).
In Living Color is on view through January 11th. Read the full article.
