Featuring over eighty photographs by Andy Warhol, the icon of American Pop, generously gifted to the UNM Art Museum’s permanent collection by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Andy Warhol’s Snapshots and Takes: Selections from the UNM Art Museum’s Andy Warhol Foundation Photographic Legacy Program Gift will highlight the artist’s prolific engagement with photography as a method, medium, and social practice.
The exhibition includes examples of the artist’s gelatin silver prints as well as his Polaroids and will feature portraits of celebrities such as Diana Ross, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Paloma Picasso, as well as photographs of some of Warhol’s favorite iconic pop objects such as shoes, wine-glasses, sky-scrapers, and chandeliers.
