I Shot Andy Warhol
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Sharpen your shooting skills in The Box this month with Cory Arcangel's I Shot Andy Warhol, a reprogrammed version of the classic light-gun video game Hogan's Alley.
Hacking into the 1980s' Nintendo cartridge, Arcangel replaces the shooting targets with Andy Warhol, the Pope, Flava Flav, and Colonel Sanders--you score points by shooting Warhol. The Brooklyn-based artist, musician, and computer programmer has been featured in the 2004 Whitney Biennial and has also been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. You can hear him discusss his work in an artist's talk on January 10 and as he introduces the Avant Gaming screening the same day.
