Andy Warhol: Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

March 3rd – May 28th, 2018
Palm Springs Art Museum, Annenberg Wing and Clayes III Wing
Andy Warhol harnessed the power of celebrity, consumer goods, sex, and disaster to create his iconic Pop Art—and the foundation of his extraordinary career was in printmaking.

This retrospective encompasses over 250 works on loan from Schnitzer’s comprehensive collection, and establishes Warhol’s graphic production as it evolved over four decades. The exhibition explores his nearly singular use of the silkscreen process, which established Warhol as a creative provocateur. Spanning the museum’s two major main-floor exhibition galleries, it features instantly recognizable images such as Campbell’s Soup Can (Tomato) and Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), alongside unique dresses, early graphic ephemera, and rare books. Warhol’s well-known fascination with popular culture instills the exhibition with a chronicle of American life, while anticipating the evolution of today’s hyper-saturated visual culture.
