Past Event Warhol by Blake Gopnik Talk and Book Launch
Join Warhol at Home for an online presentation with esteemed art critic Blake Gopnik as he presents his new biography Warhol.
Gopnik conducted extensive research in The Warhol archives to craft a fascinating account that takes on Andy Warhol in all his depth and dimensions. Wide-ranging and immersive, Warhol gives us the most robust and intricate picture to date of a man and an artist who consistently defied easy categorization and whose life and work continue to profoundly affect our culture and society today.
Gopnik is a regular contributor to The New York Times and has been staff art critic at The Globe and Mail, The Washington Post, and Newsweek, as well as critic-at-large for Artnet News. In 2015 he held a fellowship at the Leon Levy Center for Biography at City University of New York. He has a Ph.D. in art history from Oxford University and worked on Warhol during his Cullman Center Fellowship in 2017-2018.
Following the online presentation, at 7:45 p.m. EDT this day, Blake Gopnik will host a Q & A session via Twitter. To participate, tweet Blake at @BlakeGopnik with your question and #warholQandA.
