Andy Warhol: "Portraits" features over 120 paintings, prints, photographs, films, and videos that depict the artist’s favorite genre. The exhibition presents a vibrant snapshot of New York’s art and social scene from the 1960s through the 1980s with portraits of Warhol’s inner circle, including Joan Collins, Debbie Harry, Dennis Hopper, Mick Jagger, Robert Rauschenberg, and Warhol himself.

The exhibition invites the viewer into Warhol’s world by examining the artist’s personal life, studio process, and use of a variety of mediums. A substantial media experience - nine different video, television, and film programs - feature recordings of Warhol’s Polaroid portrait sessions and black-and-white screen tests from the 1960s that Warhol shot on 16mm film – including one of Salvador Dalí.

Over a dozen fashion ensembles in the exhibition by Halston, Yves Saint Laurent, Pucci, Mary McFadden, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, and Bob Mackie illustrate the highly fashionable circle surrounding Warhol during this infamous period.
