Warhol: Larger than Life
CANADA
WINNIPEG, MANITOBA  •  The Winnipeg Art Gallery  •  Ongoing
 

Warhol: Larger than Life examines the entirety of the artist's career. Its larger than life focus considers three main issues: the elevation of everyday subject matter to the sphere of "fine art," the celebration of celebrities and their larger than life existences, and finally, the creation of Andy Warhol—his metamorphosis from Andrew Warhola, a sickly young boy from a poor neighbourhood in depression-era Pittsburgh to the  New York. trendsetter.  Of interest to Canadian audiences, the exhibition also explores Warhol's contact with this country, be it in terms of events, exhibitions, celebrities, or controversy.

Warhol: Larger than Life is an expansive project of over 150 paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, archival ephemera, and films spanning some four decades of production. Working directly with The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA, the WAG enjoyed full access to its considerable collection of art and archives. From intimate informal drawings, to the iconic Marilyn and Campbell's Soup Can prints, to enigmatic self-portraits.
