Andy Warhol: Portraits & Transamerica/n: Gender, Identity, Appearance Today

June 20 - September 15
1998 1 564 pub 01

This summer, the McNay Art Museum presents two innovative and inclusive exhibitions—Andy Warhol: Portraits and Transamerica/n: Gender, Identity, Appearance Today—from June 20 to September 15, 2019.

Andy Warhol: Portraits features over 120 paintings, prints, photographs, films, and videos that depict the artist’s favorite genre. The exhibition presents a vibrant snapshot of New York’s art and social scene from the 1960s through the 1980s with portraits of Warhol’s inner circle; among them Joan Collins, Debbie Harry, Dennis Hopper, Mick Jagger, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol himself.

Transamerica/n: Gender, Identity, Appearance Today is the country’s first broad survey of contemporary artwork from across North America to explore the construction of identity through gender and outward appearance. Transamerica/n celebrates a spectrum of gender identity through artists from underrepresented backgrounds in the United States (many from the San Antonio community), Mexico, and Canada. The exhibition also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, which served as a catalyst for the modern LGBTQ+ movement around the world.
