Tinkoff City: Andy Warhol and Russian Art

.24.10.23 -

The exhibition «Tinkoff City: Andy Warhol and Russian Art» is to start a dialog between works by Andy Warhol and some of Russia’s leading artists and spotlight the diversity, depth, and legacy of the creative methods employed by the king of American pop art.

On October 24, the Jewish Museum will open a large-scale exhibition: Tinkoff City: Andy Warhol and Russian Art. The new show will include more than 60 works by Andy Warhol and another 50 by contemporary Russian artists from private collections. The exhibition is organized in cooperation with our general partner Tinkoff City.

In the 1960s, Andy Warhol said about himself: «I’ll be your mirror.» The artist, who became an icon of pop art during his lifetime, proved to be a major influence not only on American art of the second half of the 20th century but also on global art trends. Warhol's works, in which he addressed themes such as fame, wealth, advertising, and consumerism, gave rise to a brand new approach to the philosophy of art and a new type of an artist’s persona. «Warhol’s brand» was an important beacon for Russian artists during the formative years of contemporary Russian art and the emergence of an art market in the country. During that period, analyzing Soviet history using the devices of American pop art became a popular practice with local artists but, instead of exploring the cult of consumerism, they explored the cult of consuming ideological products. The goal of this exhibition is to start a dialog between works by Andy Warhol and some of Russia’s leading artists and spotlight the diversity, depth, and legacy of the creative methods employed by the king of American pop art.

Curator Yana Zvenigorodskaya and architect Anna Rumyantseva, who designed the show, have created an intricate exhibition, consisting of several parts, in the Jewish Museum’s Lobby and Left Gallery. Various periods of Warhol’s career — The Circle, I Am a Brand, Shopping, How Andy Became Warhol, The Environment, Money, Monroe, Fame, and Memento Mori — are presented in a dialog with the output of some of Russia’s best-known artists, including Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe, Avdey Ter-Oganyan, Konstantin Zvezdochetov, Oscar Rabin, Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, Mikhail Roginsky, Dmitry Prigov, Sergey Shutov, Boris Orlov, Pavel Pepperstein, Nadezhda Likhogrud, Rostislav Lebedev, and more.

The works by Russian artists at the exhibition are in sync with those by Warhol. Thus, his famous silkscreen painting Marilyn Monroe is adjacent to photographs depicting Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe clad as Hollywood’s legendary blonde; an homage to Campbell's Soup Cans is displayed next to Avdey Ter-Oganyan’s painting from his series Paintings for a Museum and Daria Krotova’s sculpture Six Cans. And Warhol’s famed Dollar Bill painting corresponds to Olga Tobleruts’s similarly titled work. Some of the works on display were made specifically for the exhibition, including Pavel Pepperstein’s portrait of Andy and Vladimir Potapov’s Forest.

In 2021, the exhibition Andy Warhol and Russian Art opened at Sevkabel Port in Saint Petersburg, where it proved to be a success. The Jewish Museum will host an updated version of the show in Moscow, where visitors will see Warhol’s iconic Campbell's Soup, Marilyn Monroe, Mao Zedong, and Liz Taylor as well as lesser-known works from his early period and his series such as Dollar Sign, Double Elvis, Flowers, I Love Your Kiss Forever Forever, and Two Golden Mona Lisas. Most of the works on display are original prints. Many of those are owned by Sunday B. Morning, a Belgian company that Warhol began working with in 1970. Back then, the artist, who had already created several successful series, wanted to produce more copies of his works. In collaboration with Sunday B. Morning, Warhol made 250 copies of both his Marilyn and Flowers, which were later featured in all of the catalogs of his works and are now considered to be sought-after items on the art market. In the late 1990s, the company resumed the production of Warhol’s Marilyn, Campbell's Soup, and other notable works. Just like before, all of the new prints have a stamp that reads «fill in your own signature», which Warhol believed helps engage their owners in conversation with the artist.

The first editions of Warhol’s prints fetch millions of dollars at international sales. Last year, Shot Sage Blue Marilyn sold for a record $195 million at Christie’s to become America’s most expensive work of art ever to sell at an auction.

Tickets for the exhibition will soon be available at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center as well as at the museum’s website and via the Tinkoff mobile app.

The exhibition is open from: October 24, 2023 — March 31, 2024

Age restriction: 16+

The exhibition is held in cooperation with our general partner Tinkoff City:
