Andy Warhol

Warhol's World: Photography & Television

Zwirner & Wirth is extremely pleased to present an exhibition of photographs and television shows by Andy Warhol. Curated by Anthony d'Offay, Warhol's World features over three hundred unique and previously unseen prints selected from the collection of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Taken between 1976 and 1987, these images vividly depict the vibrant social scene surrounding Warhol. Featured individuals include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Diana Ross, Robert Rauschenberg, Jerry Hall, Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones, Demi Moore, David Hockney, Kenny Scharf, Diana Vreeland, Paloma Piccaso, and Ozzy Ozbourne.
The photographs reveal Warhol’s surprising eye for touching images, such as those of Jean-Michel Basquiat in the company of his mother, enchanting children, as well as key members of the Factory inner circle. A self-portrait of the artist in the arms of Diana Ross proves particularly striking. There are photographs of street people, drag queens, artists and clubbers, accompanied by more intimate photographs such as those of socialite and horticulturalist C. Z. Guest on horseback at her estate on Long Island's North Shore. An image capturing a throng of paparazzi as they lie in wait reflects Warhol's particular fascination with celebrity and fame.
