Panelists will take a fresh look at Warhol’s activities from 1968 until his death in 1987, works that express great experimentation in which Warhol explored vast possibilities of abstraction, media technologies, studio practices, mass cultural forms and phenomena, and underground subcultures.
The event is free and open to the public but visitors must RSVP in advance. To RSVP and view a full schedule of events and list of panelists visit https://whitney.org/events/Andy-Warhol-After-Pop. The event also will be livestreamed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/WhitneyFocus.
“Andy Warhol After Pop” is co-organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School. It is presented in conjunction with “Andy Warhol– From A to B and Back Again,” a retrospective exhibition featuring more than 350 Warhol works, which is on display at the Whitney through March 31. The exhibition is the largest show devoted to a single artist since the Museum moved to its downtown location. Further, the exhibition is the first major Warhol retrospective organized by an American museum since 1989.
The event is part of the Whitney Museum of American Art’s year-round community programming that reinforces the Museum’s commitment to serve a wide variety of audiences in celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture, as well as supporting artists themselves.
