Cadillac Middle East has teamed up with The Andy Warhol Museum to bring a collection of the visionary's work to Dubai later in the year.

For just the second time outside of the United States, Letters to Andy Warhol will be held in the emirate from December 8 to 16.

The collaborative project between the luxury car dealer and the cultural institution is said to "celebrate Warhol's legacy through imaginative, co-created content and experiences and includes five artworks across varying mediums and techniques from different periods of Warhol's career, with Cadillac being the subject".

"It is the first time anything like this has been brought to the Middle East so we are excited to welcome everyone into the world of Andy Warhol and Cadillac," says Nadim Ghrayeb, Regional Marketing Manager of Cadillac Middle East.

"This collaboration helps to tell the story of one the most famous artists of our time, as well as the unique part Cadillac played in the ideology of the American dream.”

Letters to Andy Warhol showcases five letters from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Mick Jagger, the Museum of Modern Art, the New York State Department of Public Works and a mutual friend of his and Truman Capote that offer a glimpse into Warhol’s most personal experiences and relationships.

Each letter has also inspired artistic contributions and experiences from a roster of talent 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.
