Warhol's Ten Jews
“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. ”
Andy Warhol

The Jewish people has produced some of the world’s most influential leaders in almost every sphere: art, philosophy, science, ethics, literature, music, spirituality, politics and more. Their influence extends across the globe and down the history of human beings.

In 1980, art dealer, Ronald Feldman, suggested to world-renowned artist, Andy Warhol, to create a series of 10 influential Jewish leaders, after an Israeli dealer asked for a series of portraits of Golda Meir. The initial response from critics was extremely negative, but despite this, the series was embraced by Jews throughout the world.

Join the Academy faculty and the WITS Art Museum for a journey into the lives and impact of: Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis, Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers, Golda Meir and Gertrude Stein.

The first three sessions will explore the lives, work and impact of the ten and the last session will be a tour of the exhibition, hosted at the Wits Art Museum.

Because, we are both the changers and the changed.

In partnership with the WITS Art Museum
