About the Exhibition
August 14, 2010 – November 28, 2010
One of the last portfolios of prints made by the artist before his death in 1987, Andy Warhol’s series of ten silkscreens, Ads, embodies the artist’s signature Pop aesthetic. Using magazine advertisements and corporate logos from the 1950s—the moment in his career when he worked as an advertising designer—as source material, Warhol’s Ads convey irony, reverence, and critique of American popular culture as well as great wit.
