From the venue:The High is the exclusive East Coast venue for this sweeping retrospective featuring more than 250 prints and ephemera by artist Andy Warhol. This comprehensive show is the largest exhibition of its kind and includes such iconic screenprint portfolios as Marilyn Monroe (1967), Campbell's Soup I (1968), Electric Chair (1971), and Mao (1972). The works in the exhibition are drawn exclusively from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland. Remarkable for their nearly exhaustive range, the Schnitzer Collections offer an unparalleled opportunity to explore the breadth of Warhol's influential graphic production over the course of four decades. The artist's fascination with the commodification of celebrity chronicles American popular culture of the second half of the 20th century and serves as a prelude for considering our current fame-obsessed, media-saturated culture.
