Andy Warhol’s Jewish Geniuses

November 20th 2014 to May 24th 2015

An exhibition of the Jewish Museum Vienna in cooperation with the Jewish Museum of Australia. Andy Warhol’s Jewish Geniuses are setting foot in Australia for the very first time. Warhol’s famous portrait series of ten iconic 20th century Jewish figures will exhibit in all their screen printed brilliance in the Loti Smorgon Gallery at the Jewish Museum of Australia.

The series includes a dynamic mix of 20th century thinkers, scientists and artists including Sarah Bernhardt (actress), Louis Brandeis (judge), Martin Buber (philosopher), Albert Einstein  (physicist), Sigmund Freud (neurologist and founding father of psychoanalysis), George Gershwin (composer), Franz Kafka (writer), Golda Meir (4th Prime Minister of Israel), Gertrude Stein (writer) and The Marx Brothers (actors). The exhibition explores Warhol’s creation of the ‘celebrity’ image and his selection process behind his Jewish geniuses. It questions how Warhol depicted the public face of famous personalities, and how we receive the images of these famous Jewish figures today.
