Warhol: Headlines

Warhol: Headlines opened at Washington D.C.'s National Gallery of Art this past Sunday and will be open until January 2, 2012 before it travels internationally. The special exhibit includes several paintings of Andy Warhol's collaboration with artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring (as seen above).

"Warhol: Headlines will define and bring together works that the artist based largely on headlines from the tabloid news. Warhol had a lifelong obsession with the sensational side of contemporary news media, and examples of his source materials for the works of art will be presented for comparison, revealing Warhol's role as both editor and author."
