About

“Becoming Andy Warhol” is the first comprehensive exhibition of Andy Warhol (1928-1987) staged to date in China. First shown at UCCA Beijing in the spring and summer of 2021 and now specially designed for the space at UCCA Edge to be on view from Nov 6, 2021 to Mar 6, 2022, this exhibition brings works selected exclusively from the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), including works that are displayed for the first time outside of The Warhol, with new attention paid to the artist as a photographer and filmmaker. “Becoming Andy Warhol” reconsiders Warhol’s innovative and versatile artistic legacy and is informed by recent scholarship that candidly examines his life and prolific output with a more holistic understanding. It includes both representative and lesser-known works from various phases and aspects of his career, asserting Warhol’s anticipation of hybridity and repetition as primary influences in contemporary visual culture. “Becoming Andy Warhol” is produced in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum and curated by José Carlos Diaz, Chief Curator, and Patrick Moore, Director. The exhibition is designed by Xiaoxi Chen.
