Twisted Pair: Marcel Duchamp / Andy Warhol
Through September 12, 2010

This exhibition presents the ground-breaking work of two masters of 20th-century art. Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987) are among the most important and influential artists of the 20th century, and they continue to inspire and influence contemporary artists today. Notorious early in their careers and iconoclastic in their eras, both artists are now important touchstones of modern art history. While many have written about their artistic kinship, this exhibition — which pairs dozens of their works and takes advantage of Warhol’s personal papers — is the first to thoroughly explore Warhol’s great interest in and indebtedness to Duchamp. This exhibition is curated by Matt Wrbican, Archivist, The Andy Warhol Museum.

The Warhol thanks these generous lenders to the exhibition: Moderna Museet, Francis Naumann Fine Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Richard and Ellen Sandor Family Collection, Carroll Janis, High Museum of Art, Marion Meyer Contemporain, National Gallery of Art, Andrew L. Terner, Inc., Jay Reeg, and other private collections.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Andy Warhol Museum receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency and The Heinz Endowments. Further support is provided by the Allegheny Regional Asset District.
