The famous portrait series of ten iconic 20th century Jewish figures will exhibit in all their screen printed brilliance in the Loti Smorgon Gallery at the Jewish Museum of Australia. Including the likes of Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Franz Kafka and the Marx Brothers, the exhibition explores Warhol's creation of the 'celebrity image' and his selection process behind his Jewish geniuses.  

Accompanying Jewish Genuises will be the Warhol Now exhibition, feauturing a dynamic range of artists' responses to Warhol's aesthetic and ideology.

The exhibitions will be open from Thursday November 20 to Sunday May 24, 2015 at the Jewish Museum of Australia. For more information, visit the museum's website.
