Event description

Description

This documentary film is being offered in conjunction with the Bruce Museum's exhibition, Spring into Summer with Andy Warhol and Friends!, which will be on view from June 10-September 3, 2017

About the film:

“He was the most American of artists and the most artistic of Americans,” one man later said — “so American in fact that he is almost invisible to us.” Andy Warhol, a riveting and often deeply moving film portrait of the most famous and famously controversial artist of the second half of the twentieth century, is the first to explore the complete spectrum of Warhol’s astonishing artistic output, stretching across five decades from the late 1940s to his untimely death in 1987. Combining powerful on-camera interviews and rare still and motion picture footage, it is also the first to put Warhol himself—his humble family background and formative experiences in Pittsburgh, and his crucial apprenticeship as a commercial artist in New York—back into the presentation of his life.

Narrated by Laurie Anderson. Includes interviews with Irving Blum, Bob Colacello, Donna De Salvo, Vincent Fremont, Dave Hickey, Stephen Koch, Wayne Koestenbaum, Jeff Koons, Paul Morrissey, Billy Name, George Plimpton, Neil Printz, John Richardson, Ronald Tavel and John Warhola. A special two-part presentation for American Masters.
