Whitney: Andy Warhol


The Whitney

Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again

“Why Warhol now?” is the central question explored in this three-part series we directed for the Whitney on the occasion of the landmark exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, which opened on November 12, 2018.

The series takes a fresh look at Andy Warhol with appearances by notable artists, cultural producers, and influencers, along with the exhibition’s curator, Donna De Salvo. The aim is to help create a new kind of portrait of the artist that considers his relevance in our current moment.

In addition to De Salvo, interviewees include fashion designer Virgil Abloh; artists Amna Asghar, Peter Halley, Deborah Kass, Jeff Koons, and T.J. Wilcox; writer and podcast host Aminatou Sow; talk show host and reality television producer Andy Cohen; Julie Martin, the director of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.); Jessica Beck, the Milton Fine Curator of Art at The Andy Warhol Museum; and Warhol’s nephew James Warhola. The series features works from the Whitney’s exhibition, as well archival material, including footage of the artist at work.

The first episode, “The Culture of Now” is available here. Subsequent episodes will release later this year.
