Event Details

Join us as New York-based art historian and critic Dr. Blake Gopnik, at work on the first comprehensive biography of Andy Warhol for HarperCollins, discusses the place that textiles had in the artist's works, life and career. The world of fabrics was central to Andy Warhol. From the beginning of his career, he knew textiles, collected them, was influenced by them, and even designed them. Textiles were an integral part of his lifelong exploration of the intersections of craft and art, high and low culture, masculine and feminine, the handmade and the mechanical, and art and business. Long-time art critic of the Globe and MailThe Washington Post and Newsweek, Gopnik is now critic-at-large at Artnet News and a frequent contributor to the New York Times. 

The TMC 40th Anniversary Lecture is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Artist Textiles: Picasso to Warhol.

A separate ticket is available including a private reception and dinner with the speaker, following the lecture. Both events take place at the Victoria University Campus, University of Toronto.

6 pm  | Lecture
7:30 pm | Reception and Dinner

 

Support for this 40th anniversary event is provided by Michael Barnstijn & Louise MacCallum.
