Andy Warhol and the Celebrity Cult

Friday, Nov 23, 2012 7:00p

Andy Warhol and the Celebrity Cult
Gallery Talk with Associate Curator Rebecca Hart

Andy Warhol’s obsession with celebrity manifested itself in many ways and is most revealing in his self-portraits. This 1986 version presents the artist as spectral: his neon blue head, shock of hair, and paint splatter appear as a disembodied, free-floating mask or scull. Made at a time when many of Warhol’s friends were dying of AIDS this canvas was considered a harbinger of death.
