The Films of Andy Warhol 1988
  • Artist Rooms
Between 1963 and 1968 Warhol produced nearly 650 films, many of which were experimental and pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable in cinema. They included screen tests, silent movies and full-length feature films, which he hoped would break into Hollywood for commercial success. Then in 1970, Warhol famously withdrew all his films from circulation. However, fourteen years later he donated all his original films to New York's Museum of Modern Art for cataloguing in conjunction with the Whitney Museum’s Andy Warhol Film Project. This poster is for the exhibition which opened at the Museum of Modern Art in 1988 showcasing Warhol’s extensive film work.
