Why Warhol Persists

Dec 4, 2021
2:00 PM
Join the Aspen Art Museum and the Museum Confidential podcast for a lively, in-person discussion that begins with a seemingly simple question: Why does Andy Warhol persist? Timed to coincide with the opening of the major international retrospective Andy Warhol: Lifetimes, Museum Confidential host Jeff Martin will lead the discussion with Nancy and Bob Magoon Director Nicola Lees, artist and AAM Curator at Large Monica Majoli, and Assistant Curator Simone Krug. The conversation will explore the exhibition, which focuses on the biographical underpinnings of Warhol’s practice by expanding on the lesser-known aspects of his work and persona. Andy Warhol: Lifetimes breaks new ground by casting a queer eye on the artist as an outsider and disruptor who remade America’s image to resonate with his sensibility.

Established in 2017, Museum Confidential is a behind-the-scenes look at museums hosted by Jeff Martin of the Philbrook Museum of Art and produced by Scott Gregory with Public Radio Tulsa. The co-production is distributed through National Public Radio’s and the globally accessible NPROne app.

This event is free and open to the public.
