The “Andy Warhol: Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again” retrospective will arrive at the Art Institute of Chicago from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). Warhol authority and former senior curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art Donna De Salvo organized the show, which is the largest on the artist by an American museum since the Museum of Modern Art’s in 1989. From celebrity silkscreen portraits of Elvis Presley, Jackie Onassis, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, to lesser known works, there are over 300 pieces to see. “Warhol produced images that are now so familiar, it’s easy to forget just how unsettling and even shocking they were when they debuted,” De Salvo says. The exhibit runs through January 26.
