What did Andy Warhol do before the famous Campbell’s Soup Cans? Adman: Warhol before pop seeks to provide an answer to this.

The exhibition, dedicated to the American artist’s early career, focuses on his formative years – from his award-winning work as a commercial illustrator through to his first exhibitions.

Adman features more than 300 objects – from rare drawings and photographs to vintage advertisements, artist books and recreated department store window displays – many on public display for the first time.

A collaboration between The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh and the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney, this exhibition is grounded with the backdrop of 1950s New York advertising industry.
