Richard Meyer: Contact Warhol (Photography Without End)
Start Date: 3/13/2018Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/13/2018End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
In 2014, Stanford University acquired the world’s most comprehensive archive of Warhol’s photographic practice from the Andy Warhol Foundation. The 3,600 contact sheets and corresponding negatives in the collection represent the complete range (save for Polaroids) of Warhol’s photography from 1976 until his death in 1987. Wherever he went—whether to discotheques, dinner parties, flea markets, or wrestling matches—Warhol brought his Minox 35 EL camera with him. Friends, boyfriends, and business associates; socialites, celebrities, and sundry passersby: all captured the artist’s attention, at least for the moment it took to snap the shutter release. This is documented in the 130,000 exposures on the Stanford contact sheets . This talk addresses the importance of Warhol’s everyday (and everynight) practice of photography, with particular attention to social worlds such as Studio 54, the Reagan White House, and gay bars to which he brought his camera.

An acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world, broadening the students’ experiential base and complementing local offerings. All lectures and exhibitions are open to the general public free of charge. Unless otherwise indicated, all presentations will be held in the Art Building, Room #133, from 5-6p.
