BEYOND ANDY WARHOL’S PHOTO-AESTHETIC
Beyond Andy Warhol’s Photo-Aesthetic highlights recent gifts of Warhol photographs and prints to the GTM collection from the Andy Warhol Foundation, together with large-scale digital photographs by Chinese Malaysian artist Chee Wang Ng, whose work pays homage to Warhol. Using Warhol imagery as a tribute and a foil, Ng simultaneously reevaluates, challenges, and re-contextualizes traditional Chinese culture to explore Asian diaspora identity. Programming will include talks by Ng in English and Chinese, a lecture series, and films on Warhol and his art. A partnership with the Queens College Asian American Center will translate texts and bring the exhibition to local community organizations and audiences through slide presentations, visits to the Museum, and other programs.
