Adman – Warhol before pop Exhibition

The most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to Andy Warhol’s early career in more than 25 years.

With the backdrop of 1950s New York and its burgeoning advertising industry, Adman: Warhol before pop focuses on the formative years of one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. It provides surprising insights into the beginning of Warhol’s career, from his award-winning work as a commercial illustrator through to his first, little-known exhibitions.

Adman includes over 300 objects – from rare drawings and photographs to vintage advertisements, artist books and recreated department store window displays – many on public display for the first time.

This exhibition is a collaboration between the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney and The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh.

There’s also an unmissable range of programs, including a partnership with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2017 which presents a Queer Art After Hours on Wednesday 1 March and a Queer Thinking symposium.
