Since its incorporation in 1987, one of the Foundation's most important priorities has been to present Warhol's work to the public in a scholarly and focused manner. To this end, the Foundation has loaned over 10,000 works from its diverse collection to over 200 exhibitions worldwide. These works include paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography and prints from the early 1950s through the 1980s. Whether comprehensive or selective, thematically based or medium-specific, the exhibitions undertaken in collaboration with the Foundation share the goal of making Warhol's work more widely known, studied and appreciated. In helping to establish the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Foundation also laid the groundwork for new scholarship and curatorial innovation.
Demand for Warhol’s work has increased substantially in the years since his death. His impact on the arts, art making, and culture-at-large continues to resonate with artists and audiences around the world. His work has been included in numerous gallery and museum exhibitions, a selection of which is listed below. Please note that inclusion on this partial list does not imply an endorsement by the Andy Warhol Foundation. The Foundation continues to support exhibitions that encourage public interaction with and understanding of Warhol’s diverse body of work and that expand the growing body of scholarship on his artistic practice and his place in contemporary art history.
