In October 1965 the recently opened Institute for Contemporary Art hosted Andy Warhol’s first institutional retrospective to great acclaim.

Out of Sight: A Discovery, A Collector, and Andy Warhol?

 

In 2009, the American Andy Warhol Collector Gregory McCoy discovered a treasure trove of exhibition posters depicting Warhol’s famous 1962 screen print of the actress Marilyn Monroe. For the past twelve years, McCoy has attempted to prove the origins of these striking posters produced at the time of Warhol’s Swedish exhibit. A selection of McCoy's posters will be exhibited and contextualized in Kislak’s Goldstein Gallery.
