Andy Warhol’s Social Network: Interview, Television and Portraits
“Andy Warhol’s Social Network…” examines the intersections between Warhol’s longest running project, Interview magazine; his ventures in television with his original series Fashion, Warhol TV, and Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes; and his portrait commissions of the 1970s and 1980s.
This exhibition charts the visual transformation of the magazine from underground film journal to an arbiter of popular culture featuring celebrities, fashion brands and artists.
The show also demonstrates how Warhol intermingled his commissioned portraits with the content and covers of the magazine and correlated this material with his television series.
Warhol’s portrait commissions were both a means of social network building as well as a funding stream to support the early years of the magazine.
“Andy Warhol’s Social Network…” will be on view at the Andy Warhol Museum, Sep. 24, 2022–Feb. 20, 2023.
In addition to its daylight hours, we are jubilant that The Warhol is open until 10 p.m. every Friday.
