The exhibition “Andy Warhol: Revelation” explores the artist's connection to his lifelong faith, which often manifested itself in his work.

From iconic celebrity portraits to embezzled Renaissance masterpieces, Warhol played with styles and symbolism from Catholic art history, carefully reinterpreting them in the context of pop art and culture. Throughout his life, Warhol retained some of his Catholic rituals and also lived as an openly gay man.

Andy Warhol: Revelation explores topics such as life and death, power and desire, the role and representation of women, renaissance imagery, familial and immigrant traditions and rituals, images and copies of Christ, and the Catholic body and queer desires. Over a hundred exhibits include rare source materials and newly discovered objects that provide a fresh look at Warhol's creative process.
