Between September 18th and December 31st, 2012, the Museum of Modern Art in New York plays host to an exhibition called “Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years”. The exhibition is structured in five thematic sections: “Daily News: From Banality to Disaster,” “Portraiture: Celebrity and Power,” “Queer Studies: Shifting Identities,” “Consuming Images: Appropriation, Abstraction, and Seriality,” and “No Boundaries: Business, Collaboration, and Spectacle.”

You could say that Andy Warhol is an artist that you either love or hate, well we pretty much love him here, so it is great to see his work exhibited amongst many other great artists. Here are some highlights and you can find out more at the MOMA site.
