Warhol: Then, Now, and Forever
Download Full Text
Part of Andy Warhol’s reputation rests on having turned his disordered life into a kind of performance, and yet some of the most important scholarship on the artist involves documenting his activity with rigorous accuracy. To celebrate the opening of a major new Warhol retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, we ask what is most compelling today: Warhol’s chaotic life-as-art, or his individual works, or something else entirely? To answer these questions we are joined by three figures who see his life from different perspectives. Vincent Fremont was formerly the Vice President of Andy Warhol Enterprises and the executive manager of the artist’s studio. Following Warhol’s death in 1987, he was instrumental in forming the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Sally King-Nero has been the Executive Editor of the artist’s catalog raisonné and Curator of Drawings and Photographs at the Andy Warhol Foundation for over 25 years. They are joined by artist and Sotheby’s Institute of Art professor Stephan Pascher. The discussion will be hosted by Morgan Falconer, Acting Director of the MA in Contemporary Art program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art-New York.
