Andy Warhol died in 1987 but he remains alive and well in contemporary culture. This class explores Warhol in his entirety – from his childhood and early success as a commercial artist to his enduring influence on current practices in the artworld including the legacy of his defining performance as a late 20th century artist. Through a variety of materials – texts, interviews, films, reviews and videos – students form an understanding of the world Warhol came from, the times he lived through, the work he made and his continued relevance to our present moment. The final assignment is a curatorial project that offers a new perspective on Warhol for 2015. This course is a seminar; participation is required.
