Andy Warhol: Early Film & Video Works

Curated by: Geralyn Huxley
Shown in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh

Andy Warhol’s early film and video works cover an enormous range of projects and subjects. Some, such as Chelsea Girls and Sleep, became famous in their own time, while others, such as the works in this exhibition, are only now emerging for public view.

Outer and Inner Space is a double-screen projection that includes within it what is believed to be the first-ever video made by an artist. Screen Tests, of which we will show approximately twenty (out of 500 shot), are short, and very intimate, silent film portraits of people who passed through the Factory in the 1960s.

A catalogue with text commentary by Callie Angell, Geralyn Huxley and Bill Jeffries.

From Stills To Motion & Back Again: Texts On Andy Warhol's Screen Tests & Outer And Inner Space

Andy Warhol’s early film and video works cover an enormous range of projects and subjects. Some, such as Chelsea Girls and Sleep, became famous in their own time, while others, such as the works in this exhibition, are only now emerging for public view.
