The exhibition was curated Jessica Beck, assistant curator of art at the museum, which is one of the Four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.

Alongside Dr Boaden’s contribution there are two further essays: ‘Warhol’s Beauty Problems’ by Jessica Beck and ‘Andy’s Perfect Body’ by the poet and performance artist John Giorno (1936-2019).
