"Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop" includes his 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe.

“Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop” is coming to the Memorial Art Gallery on Oct. 25. This exhibit consists of 79 screenprints by the American artist, film director, producer and publisher, as well as related ephemera and works depicting Warhol by other artists.

“Andy Warhol Portfolios,” loaned through the Bank of America Art in Our Communities program, will run through March 28, 2021.

Presented in MAG’s Docent Gallery, the exhibition showcases a range of Warhol’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985. It includes his 1967 portrait of Marilyn Monroe, “Campbell’s Soup II” (1969) and “Flowers” (1970), along with less familiar subjects.

“Birmingham Race Riot “(1964), “Muhammad Ali” (1978), “Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century” (1980) and “Myths” (1981) underscore the breadth of Warhol’s interest in cultural and political life. “Sunset” (1972), “Grapes” (1979), “Space Fruit” (1979), “Endangered Species” (1983) and “Vesuvius” (1985) suggest a different set of concerns, with the traditional art historical subject matters of still life, landscape and also of the animal world.
