Adman: Warhol before pop
25 February – 28 May 2017
Adman: Warhol before pop at the Art Gallery of New South Wales is the most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to Warhol’s early career in more than 25 years, revealing his origins in the worlds of art and advertising during the pre-Pop, pre-Mad Men era.
In this extraordinary survey of early work from the art and archival collections of The Andy Warhol Museum, Adman: Warhol before pop presents over 300 objects including drawings, photographs, artist’s books, shop-front window displays, vintage advertisements and personal ephemera – many of which have never before been placed on public display.
Adman: Warhol before pop is a rare opportunity to encounter the formative years of one of the world’s most influential artists, providing deeper insight into the making of an icon.
