Amiga 1000

Recreation of Andy Warhol’s Amiga based on original objects found the museum’s archives.

In the summer of 1985, Commodore International commissioned Andy Warhol to use new graphic arts software to create digital works as a part of their promotion of the Amiga 1000 home computer. Commodore went bankrupt in 1994, and Warhol’s digital images were frozen on obsolete hard drives and disks in the archives of the museum for nearly 20 years. In 2014, contemporary artist Cory Arcangel organized a collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, Carnegie Museum of Art, and The Warhol to recover the lost drawings from the original floppy disks. With the Amiga 1000 interactive, visitors can experience Warhol’s digital drawings on a model created by The Warhol in collaboration with local design studio Iontank.

Andy Warhol: Portraits

In Warhol’s vast body of work, portraiture is probably the most prominent of all his practices. Throughout his career, the sum total of his celebrity and commissioned portraits exceeded eleven hundred sitters. His work captured each generation and the people who would become icons.

Screen Test Machine

In a room with silver brick walls, a woman sits in front of an old-fashioned camera.

Between 1964 and 1966, Andy Warhol created almost five hundred Screen Tests of famous and anonymous visitors to his studio, the Silver Factory, including Salvador Dalí, Dennis Hopper, and Edie Sedgwick. In a gallery reminiscent of Warhol’s studio, visitors are invited to create their own screen test utilizing a computer touch screen, a moveable backdrop, a specially modified vintage camera, and twin studio lights. Upon completion, the visitor’s screen test is transformed digitally from real time to slow motion and published to the web.

Silver Clouds

Warhol created Silver Clouds with the assistance of Billy Klüver for a 1966 exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery. Warhol designed an environment filled with Silver Clouds, helium-filled balloons that moved with the air currents. A favorite of visitors to The Warhol, the Silver Clouds are reproduced for museum quality art installations and are not commercially available.

Warhol Wallpaper

From the 1960s into the early 1980s, Warhol created wallpaper with images of cows, fish, Chairman Mao, among others. The wallpaper was exhibited alongside Warhol’s paintings and prints. The Warhol refabricates Warhol’s wallpaper for museum-approved use in art exhibitions. Warhol’s wallpapers are not commercially available and have only been used in installations of Warhol’s work.
