Warhol Exhibition Heads Overseas
Warhol Exhibition Heads Overseas0The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is sending an exhibition of 70 works by the famed artist to the Saudi Arabian city of AlUla ? also known as Al-‘Ula. The works will be shown at the Arts AlUla Festival, one of the many arts events intended to boost the country’s cultural standing. Curated by the museum’s institute director, Patrick Moore, the exhibit is designed to introduce the people of Saudi Arabia to Warhol’s art. It will be especially relevant, Moore states, to study the lens through which Warhol viewed fame, especially in the age of social media.

Under the title “Fame: Andy Warhol in AlUla,” the exhibition is due to open on Feb. 17, 2023, at the Maraya ? a mirrored building in the middle of the desert. The pieces exhibited will include some of Warhol’s “screen tests” and his depictions of internationally renowned figures, ranging from Muhammad Ali to Dolly Parton.

Saudi Arabia has aimed to lure a large number of international artists and curators to the country by hosting a range of art events, such as the Desert X biennial that launched in 2020. The country hopes that the Warhol show will be potentially transformative for the country and will convince serious art lovers to consider it as a new artistic hot spot. However, many members of the art world have condemned the nation’s record of human rights violations, saying that international figures should steer away from investing their money, time, and attention in the desert nation. Among such advocates for boycotts was the Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic Christopher Knight, who called Desert X “morally corrupt.”
