NATIONAL GALLERY OF MODERN ART June 12 to September 9, 2012

This is the first exhibition devoted to works by Andy Warhol on the subject of newspaper titles. Warhol: Headlines collects and presents about 80 works - paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, film, video and television - based largely on news of the tabloids, which leaked from the obsession with the sensational side of contemporary media that characterized throughout his career. Are compared with the works carried out different techniques and media to show how to cut out Warhol, altered, obscured, and rearranged the text and original images, emphasizing his role as editor of that author. The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Museum of Rome and Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt.
