Sara Krajewski, The Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art

Andy Warhol was a prodigious consumer of photographs, which influenced his approach to how pictures are manufactured for wide audiences. In this lecture, Andy Warhol curator Sara Krajewski explores how Warhol’s prints reflect his complex understanding of media culture and his response to advancements in image-making technologies from the 1950s to 1980s.
