Listen up, fans of Andy Warhol: the final exhibition of ‘Letters to Andy Warhol’ is coming to d3 in December.

In partnership with The Andy Warhol Museum, Cadillac has announced that the final stop on the exhibition’s global tour will take place from Friday December 8 until Saturday December 16.

‘Letters to Andy Warhol’ showcases five letters from legendary cultural figures like Yves Saint Laurent and Mick Jagger, institutions like the Museum of Modern Art and the New York State Department of Public Works, plus other figures that help to provide a glimpse into Warhol’s most personal experiences and relationships.

The exhibition focuses on the artistic contributions, inspired by each letter, from a range of international talents including Aimee Mullins, Brian Atwood, Chiara Clemente, Derek Blasberg, David LaChapelle, Francesco Clemente, J.J. Martin, Nick Rhodes, Sean Lennon, Sienna Miller, and Zac Posen.

This is the second time that the exhibition has been seen outside the US, the first taking place in Munich earlier this year and, as such, is a big deal for fans of the legendary artist. The collaborative project between Cadillac and The Andy Warhol Museum celebrates Warhol’s legacy with five pieces of artwork that span varying mediums from different periods of the legendary artist’s prolific career, all of which share Cadillac as the subject.


Together, the rarely-seen letters and artistic contributions explore recurring themes from Warhol’s body of work, such as the blurring of art and commerce, plus the trials and tribulations of fame. The result is an examination not only of Warhol’s many sides and forms of inspiration, but also of a man who looked for ideas across the colliding worlds of fashion, music, media, art, and celebrity.

Add this event to your calendars – it’s not one to be missed!

Free. Dec 8-16, noon-9pm. Dubai Design District, ae-en.cadillacarabia.com/experience_cadillac/letters-to-andy-warhol.html
