Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years

February 2 – April 28, 2013

For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence. Through approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some sixty other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol’s paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work. What emerges is a fascinating dialogue between works of art and artists across generations.

Organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art with major loans from the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum, Regarding Warhol will be installed throughout the museum and reveal Warhol’s extraordinary impact on contemporary art production.

Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years is made possible through the generous support of PNC Financial Services.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: S/HE IS HER/E

June 15 – September 15, 2013

H/er first solo museum exhibition, S/HE IS HER/E, will showcase the breadth of P- Orridge’s art practice through over 100 works, dating from the mid 1970s to the present. With an art practice dating back to the late 1960s, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has reinvented and reintroduced h/erself as groundbreaking performance artist, pioneer of industrial music, “wrecker of civilization”, essayist, and, most recently, as pandrogyne. H/er singular and, at times, provocative creative practice has exerted a profound influence on visual artists and musicians alike. Genesis has performed in a number of music projects including Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV and Pigface. A central focus for the exhibition is the Pandrogyne project – a complex and highly ambitious series of collaborative artworks by P-Orridge and his wife Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge (1969-2007). Frustrated by what they considered to be socially imposed limits on personal identity and on the language of true love, P-Orridge and Lady Jaye sought to merge their two identities, using plastic surgery, hormone therapy, cross-dressing, and altered behavior to create the pandrogynous being, “Breyer P-Orridge.” An act of love, the work explores how fully two people can integrate their lives, bodies, and consciousnesses. Lady Jaye passed away in 2007, and the project continues with Genesis embodying the entirety of Breyer P- Orridge.

Caldwell Linker: All Through the Night

June 15 – September 15, 2013

Caldwell Linker has worked in photography for over 15 years and has produced a large body of work depicting LGBQT individuals and events. All Through the Night presents a selection of images executed since the artist’s relocation to Pittsburgh in 2007 and reveals an intimate and celebratory portrait of Pittsburgh’s vibrant LGBQT communities. From extravagant performances of local drag queens, house parties and simple afternoons on the porch, Linker’s images portray a broad spectrum of people, locations and emotions. Primarily composed with available light “as found” rather than staged, the photographs convey a sense of the communities’ rich social texture and intimate personal engagement.

Nick Bubash: The Patron Saint of White Guys That Went Tribal and Other Works
June 15 – September 15, 2013
The Patron Saint of White Guys That Went Tribal and Other Works, the first solo museum exhibition of work by Pittsburgh artist Nick Bubash features a recreation of the artist’s studio which focuses on a large group of found object sculptures. These sculptures reveal a playful approach to the artist’s practices and sardonic sense of humor. Bubash has exhibited extensively across the US since 1989, with work exhibiting a wide range of media and diverse stylistic approach. Bubash is also a nationally recognized tattooist and is the owner of Route 60 Tattoo in McKees Rocks.

Chipaumire returns with Miriam, her first character-driven work, with influences such as Joseph Conrad’s writings; the life of South African singer and activist Miriam Makeba; and the Christian iconography of Mary. Accompanied by a dynamic score from Afro-Cuban composer Omar Sosa, Chipaumire and fellow performer, Okwui Okpokwasili command the stage—both crime scene and sacred space—with a striking performance dealing with the objectification and power of the black female body and the alienating experience of living in exile. The tour of Nora Chipaumire is made possible by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The presentation of Nora Chipaumire was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W.
