Andy Warhol: In the Vernacular
a lecture by
Dr. Catherine Zuromskis, Assistant Professor, Department of Art and Art History, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque
Planned in conjunction with the Andy Warhol’s Snapshots and Takes exhibition

The lecture will take place in the Clinton Adams Gallery

Pop Artist Warhol is perhaps best known for his paintings, his films, and his flamboyant celebrity persona, yet few aspects of his art practice are as complex or as revealing as his photographs.  This lecture will address Warhol’s lifelong fascination with photography. As a photographer, a photographic collector, and a near constant photographic subject, Warhol made photography a central part of both his art and his daily life. By exploring both the aesthetic and the social contexts in which Warhol‘s photographs operated (and the murky distinction between the two), this lecture will shed new light on an iconic artist and cultural figure.

Funding for this lecture series is generously provided in part by the Department of Art and Art History and by the Allene H. and Walter P. Kleweno Lecture Series Fund.
