Print and digital books organized by The Andy Warhol Museum

The Publications Department was established in November 2012 to organize the efforts of curators, artists, writers and staff in the creation of published material. Prior to this point the museum worked with outside partners on a project by project basis to create publications when possible. Moving forward we hope to grow the department and strive to create both digital and print publications that honor art, and artists; that celebrate scholarly inquiry; that challenge, entertain and delight.

Publisher: Abrams
$50.00Buy Now
Halston and Warhol illuminate through their art and fashion a uniquely American point of view, one that matched high and low materials, deceptively simple forms with multi-step processes and the perspectives of trusted friends with their own singular ambition.  Both were outsiders, one from Pittsburgh and one from Iowa, whose skyrocketing career trajectories in New York boldly challenged the status quo and placed their names in media headlines. For the first time, their lives and work are presented side by side in over 300 images with interviews and essays that explore their friendship and their art.
