“Warhol didn’t make a mark on American culture. He became the instrument with which American culture designated itself.” — Peter Schjeldahl
In conjunction with the Whitney show ANDY WARHOL—FROM A TO B AND BACK AGAIN, Irving Blum—whose Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles was the first to exhibit Warhol’s post-advertising artwork, the Campbell’s soup-can paintings—will talk about working with the artist.
Blum will be joined by Bob Colacello—Interview editor throughout the 1970s—and Vincent Fremont, the former executive manager of Warhol’s studio and a co-founder of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
Exhibition curator Donna De Salvo will moderate the conversation.
Friday, November 16, at 6:30 pm.
Through March 31.
Whitney Museum of American Art, 99 Gansevoort Street, New York City.
