The Vatican Will Host an Expansive Andy Warhol Exhibition

Emphasizing the artist’s “spiritual side.”

The Vatican Museums have announced a career-spanning exhibition from pop artist Andy Warhol next year. The event will coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum, which will contribute artwork to the event.

Rome’s Braccio di Carlo Magno will host the exhibit, which will focus on Warhol’s religious works. The Vatican Museums’ director, Barbara Jatta, states, “We are very interested in exploring the artist’s spiritual side.” A devout Catholic, Warhol often spent his evenings working in the Church of Heavenly Rest’s homeless shelter and attended Mass at New York’s St. Vincent Ferrer church. Pieces at the exhibition will include Warhol’s da Vinci-inspired “Last Supper” series from 1986, memento mori canvases — like silkscreens of skulls — and films.

If you can’t make it to Italy in 2019, the Andy Warhol Museum will simultaneously host the showcase.

Other notable upcoming exhibitions include OS GEMEOS’ first solo exhibit, to be held in Hong Kong.
