Marisol and Warhol Take New York @ Perez Art Museum Miami _PAMM

Marisol and Warhol Take New York charts the emergence of Marisol (b. 1930, Paris; d. 2016, New York) and Andy Warhol (b. 1928, Pittsburgh; d. 1987, New York) in New York during the dawn of Pop art in the early 1960s.Marisol and Warhol Take New York explores the artists’ parallel rises to success, the formation of their artistic personas, their savvy navigation of gallery relationships, and the blossoming of their early artistic practices from 1960 to 1968. The exhibition features key loans of Marisol’s work from major global collections, along with iconic works and rarely seen films and archival materials from Warhol’s collection. Born in Paris to Venezuelan parents, Marisol (María Sol Escobar) held a central position in the New York art scene and American Pop movement. Over time, however, she was written out of the white male-dominated Pop narrative. By situating her work in dialogue with Warhol’s, this exhibition seeks to reclaim the importance of her practice; reframe the strength, originality, and daring nature of her work; and reconsider her as one of the leading figures of the Pop era.
