Andy Warhol was highly attuned to our social practice of using celebrations to mark anniversaries—whether of births, deaths, or centennials, and whether of people, places, or things.  Marking Time: Andy Warhol’s Vision of Celebrations, Commemorations, and Anniversaries is the first exhibition to explore Warhol’s insights into the social and personal significances of such time markers. Among the works included in the exhibition are prints occasioned by the centennial of the Brooklyn Bridge and the five-year anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination, Polaroid photographs of holiday motifs and that record feminist milestones, black and white photographs of birthday celebrations, and a work in plastic marking the ten-year anniversary of the fabled Leo Castelli Gallery.


Marking Time is part of Warhol x 5, a series of exhibitions in 2018 organized by five university art museums in the region; drawing upon each other’s collections, each museum focuses on a different theme, and all feature works donated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
