Cadillac has come together with the Andy Warhol Museum, creating a traveling art exhibition featuring Warhol's intimate personal correspondence, called Letters to Andy Warhol.

The exhibition will feature closely guarded material from deep within the museum's archive, including letters, obscure artwork, along with other contributions from contemporary creators. The exhibition aims to explore Warhol's artistic tropes--like the mingling of commerce and art or the trials and tribulations of fame--along with an examination of Warhol's cultural reach, transcending genres.

Warhol's correspondence with Yves Saint Laurent, Mick Jagger, the Museum of Modern Art, a friend of his at the New York State Department of Public Works, and Truman Capote come under scrutiny in Letters, illuminating the man's personal experiences and the effect on his relationships.

Joining the letters are five works of varying mediums, spread over different periods of his career, all focusing on the Cadillac.

The exhibition also includes five artworks across varying mediums and techniques, from different periods of Warhol's career, that all share Cadillac as the subject.

The Cadillac artworks on display in Letters to Andy Warhol include:
  • Four Male Costumed Full Figures, 1950s and Car, 1950s, commissioned by Harper's Bazaar, as "a visual comment on the phenomenon of the American motorcar." The works feature a 1958 Cadillac Coupe de Ville.
  • Cadillac, 1962 in graphite on sketchbook paper.
  • Seven Cadillacs, 1962 depicts a 1963 Fleetwood (Special) four-door hardtop in black silkscreen ink on linen.
  • Sign (Keep Out) 1976-1986, 1986 uses four gelatin silver photographs, machine-stitched in a grid, highlighting a 1983 Cadillac Coupe de Ville d'Elegance.
From Nov.15 to Dec.26 the exhibition will be open 7 days a week at Cadillac House, on Hudson Street in Manhattan. The public is welcome to attend, free of charge. Come 2017 the exhibition will pack up and head west to LA and hitting Miami in February, before setting out globally in 2018.
