"Ten Years After: The Warhol Factory"
Throughout his career, Andy Warhol relied on the collaborative support of creative people
in the visual, literary, and performing arts to provide him with ideas and assistance in his artwork
and his movies. These people helped to create the intriguing atmosphere of Warhol's studio in
New York City, known simply as the Factory. Pop icons who became household names in the sixties,
these surviving members of the Factory years are sometimes overlooked in the contemporary assessment
of Warhol's influence, and their accomplishments remain hidden.
In "Ten Years After - The Warhol Factory" the artistic achievements of six of Warhol's associates
are featured. Gerard Malanga, Billy Name, Ultra Violet, Allen Midgette and Christopher Makos
are included in the exhibition, as well as Warhols nephew, James Warhola, who carries on the artistic
tradition within the Warhola family. Laura Rubin joins the artists of the Warhol Circle with select photographs
from the factory years.
Curated by Dr. Debra Miller (Associate Professor of Art History, Master of Arts and Liberal Studies Program),
the exhibition represents each artist with a mini-retrospective of approximately ten works, surveying the
varied media and phases of each one's career.
