Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Big Shots: Andy Warhol, Celebrity Culture, and the 1980s." From the Spencer: Eric C. Shiner, Milton Fine Curator of Art at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, visits the Spencer next Wednesday evening to discuss the Warhol legacy. Andy Warhol was one of the 20th century's most innovative artists. From his early illustrations to his late paintings, Warhol was a pioneer who ignored reigning art-world taboos by incorporating fashion and celebrity culture into his pop art. Shiner's lecture will address the pivotal role these topics played in Warhol's work. In addition to his duties at the Warhol Museum, Shiner is an active writer, translator, and adjunct professor of art history at the University of Pittsburgh.
