From Marilyn to Mao: Andy Warhol's Famous Faces is a thematically focused look at the artist's influential screen prints. Andy Warhol is central to the pop art movement and one of the best-known 20th-century American artists. From Marilyn to Mao uses 55 of Warhol's famous portraits to explore pop art's tenet of the cult of celebrity, the idea that pop culture adores the famous simply because they are famous. Warhol exploited society's collective obsession with fame like no artist before or after him. The exhibition celebrates the Mao Suite, an anonymous gift to the CMA of the complete set of Warhol's 10 silkscreens of Chairman Mao Zedong.
