Madonna is not ashamed in Washington D.C.
Four Andy Warhol and Keith Haring’s Madonna artworks from 1985 – including their iconic “I’m Not Ashamed” – will be on display at the The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. from Sunday, September 25 as part of “Warhol: Headlines“, the first exhibition to fully examine the works that Andy Warhol created on the theme of news headlines.
Running from from September 25, 2011, to January 2, 2012. Warhol: Headlines will define and present some 80 works – paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculpture, film, video, and television – based largely on the tabloid news, revealing the artist’s career-long obsession with the sensational side of contemporary media.
Source materials for the art will be presented for comparison, demonstrating the ways in which Warhol cropped, altered, obscured, and reoriented the original texts and images, underscoring his role as both editor and author.
After Washington, the exhibition will be on view at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, Germany (February 11May 13, 2012); Galleria nazionale d’arte moderna, Rome, Italy (June 11September 9, 2012); and The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, USA (October 14, 2012January 6, 2013).
