A huge double sided vinyl museum exhibition poster titled "Andy Warhol Retrospective at MOCA", 2002. The poster was produced for the special exhibit of Warhol's work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, California. An Andy Warhol Retrospective on exhibit from May 25th, 2002 – August 18th, 2002. The poster features one of Warhol's iconic Elizabeth Taylor paintings. Warhol painted a series of 13 paintings of the Hollywood actress in 1963. Poster size: 94'' x 35.25". Light normal wear associated with use. In very good to excellent condition. Very Rare.

The Andy Warhol Retrospective was the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of Andy Warhol (1928-1987) to be presented in Los Angeles in over 30 years. The only American venue for the retrospective, MOCA will bring together more than 200 paintings, drawings, and sculptures by the influential 20th-century artist, forming one of the most extensive surveys of Warhol's work ever mounted in the United States.

This exhibition opened May 25, 2002 at The Museum of Contemporary Art and remained on view through August 18, 2002. The exhibition occupied the entire 25,000 square feet gallery space of the MOCA at California Plaza building.

Andy Warhol Retrospective spanned the legendary artist's entire career, from the early 1940s through 1986, and features key early works from such landmark series as Campbell's Soup Cans, Marilyn, Jackie, Mao, Elvis, Flowers, Disaster, and Self-Portraits. Organized by Heiner Bastian for the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the exhibition then traveled to the Tate Modern in London. MOCA's presentation featured key additional loans secured only for Los Angeles.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
