Polaroids, Photographs, and Films: Re-Viewing Andy Warhol’s Work in the Age of Social Media and Self Curating
February 13 – March 26, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 13 / 4-7 pm
Curator Mario Ontiveros Talk: Monday, February 15 / 10 am
Although Andy Warhol is known as one of the United States’ premiere Pop artists, this exhibition offers a unique opportunity to view his work beyond the frame of a silkscreen print, and in a lesser-known light as a photographer, and an even more vastly different lens as a filmmaker. This exhibition will include more than sixty of Warhol’s Polaroids and black-and-white photographs and will also include two of Warhol’s long films, Sleep (1963), which clocks in at six hours, and Empire (1964), which has a running time of eight hours and five minutes. Time, clearly, is an essential element to Warhol’s practice.
