Fall Semester 2009
9/08/09 – 12/12/09
The exhibition presents Andy Warhol’s 153 Polaroids and silver gelatin photographs recently gifted to the University by the Andy Warhol Foundation. A vast majority of the works were never seen in pulic. The works are reviewed in the broader context of Warhol’s art and established their status as original artworks in their own right. The show also demonstrates photography’s importance to Warhol’s conceptual undertakings, especially his compulsion to document the world around him. Collections from the Andy Warhol Museum and Gallery DeNovo will be featured complimentary to the photographs, including Warhol’s silkscreens and paintings, as well as photographs of Andy by other photographers.
Dr. William Ganis is an Assistant Professor of Art History and Director of the String Room Gallery at Wells College in Aurora, NY. He has had curatorial experience at the Guggenheim Museum and the Andy Warhol Museum and is the author of /Andy Warhol’s Serial Photography, /the first scholarly and comprehensive material written about Warhol’s photographs.
