We’ve curated the must-see exhibits and events from around the globe:
Blain|Di Donna has gathered more than 50 of Warhol’s portraits of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the first show dedicated to artist’s portrayal of the late First Lady. Much of the work, created 50 years ago, was done when Warhol was just experimenting with the style of successive screenprints that would make him the 20th century’s biggest art-world celebrity. Warhol may have fostered the “It girl,” but Jackie embodied the icon, and Warhol’s depictions of her—in blues, browns, and whites, as if negatives from a French art film—bring a haunting dignity to his pop-culture-obsessed body of work.
