Don’t miss this extraordinary ‘reveal’ of a documentary film on the legendary pop artist Andy Warhol. Lana Jokel’s 1972 film captures it all with rare archival footage and interviews with art world icons, so get a sneak preview and a prelude to the blockbuster Warhol retrospective at NYC’s Whitney Museum in November.
This 1973 film shows Warhol, on camera, at his most talkative and in his inimitable style, discusses life, society, money and art. Revealing his uncanny instinct to pick up what is in the air and what is the pulse of things to come. Lively exchanges with Philip Johnson, Barbara Rose, as well as insights from friends, superstars and art world figures, give an unflinching look into the personality of Warhol and his art.
