Andy Warhol 1978

This poster is for a small exhibition of Warhol’s work held at the Student Center Art Gallery at Seton Hall University. Conceived by the show’s coordinator following a meeting with Warhol, the exhibition comprised a range of work including portraits, electric chairs, Campbell’s Soup Cans and three of his films – 'Frankenstein', 'Dracula' and 'Heat'. It was hoped that “Warhol himself may attend the opening” – but his diaries do not indicate that he did. The poster design uses a photo of Warhol on the telephone in a repeated grid format, with some images more faded than others. This draws parallels with Warhol’s own work and particularly his screenprints, where the repetition would often result in variations of the image’s intensity.
