Give and Take

"Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art."—Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (1975)

The act of exchange permeates Warhol’s work in many different forms—the exchange of goods, the exchange of gazes, the exchange of bodies, to name a few. In this session, panelists discuss these and other related elements in Warhol’s work.

Curator, Andy Warhol Film Project at the Whitney Museum of American Art

Beauty and the Banal

"Do billboards influence you?"
"I think they’re beautiful."—Andy Warhol, Art Voices (1962)

Soup cans. Marilyn Monroe. Brillo boxes. Elvis Presley. In Warhol’s mind, one was as worthy of attention as another. This session explores Warhol’s fascination with and blurring of beauty, fame, and the everyday.

"I'll Be Your Mirror"
Velvet Underground Tribute
SAT, NOV 15| 10 PM
The Summit (2216 Summit St.)

"Run, run, run" and keep the Warhol discussion (and party) going into the evening as artist and Ohio State art prof Mary Jo Bole hosts a celebration of Warhol's legendary musical collaborators, the Velvet Underground, at Columbus's newest rock room. Scheduled to perform are the Cheater Slicks, Evolution Control Committee, Moviola, Nelson Slater, Steam Age-Time Giant, and more.

This isn’t a Wexner Center event per se, but we heartily endorse Mary Jo Bole and an evening of liberally reinterpreted Velvets songs. Call (614) 268-9377 for more information. Bole and company send thanks to Moreland Funeral Home for a donation of flowers.

PARKING UPDATE: Construction at 15th and High. For more information click here.
