“A captivating exhibition that, for the first time, unites the work of Roy Halston Frowick and Andy Warhol, offering a unique perspective on the intersections between their lives and creative practice.

Halston and Warhol integrates approximately 40 of Halston’s creations, including the iconic pillbox hat designed for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and his signature Ultrasuede shirtdress, with a broad selection of paintings, photographs, and videos by Warhol. It also features a variety of archival material and ephemera that further link the two men both creatively and socially and explore their shared influences and interests.”
