The Warhol Look: Glamour Style Fashion

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)

Duration

19 Dec 1998 to 14 Mar 1999

Guest Curators: Margery King & Mark Francis

about the exhibition

The Warhol Look: Glamour, Style, Fashion was an exhibition that examined the wide-ranging creativity of Andy Warhol, an artist obsessed with glamour, style and fashion, who has had a profound influence on contemporary art and thinking. Organised by the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, this exhibition contributed significantly to understanding Warhol’s vision and originality, his influence and legacy.

The exhibition examined the integral role that fashion and concepts of glamour played in shaping Andy Warhol’s art, and also demonstrated how Warhol’s art shaped and continues to shape style and fashion. Warhol’s interests were traced through a series of rooms and displays covering his life and work over four decades, from the 1940s to the 1980s. Much of the material included in the exhibition came from The Andy Warhol Museum’s art and archival collections, and included Warhol paintings, costumes, souvenirs and personal relics, photographs, period magazines, illustrations, reconstructed window displays, and large-scale film and video.
