Image Machine: Andy Warhol and Photography


Iconic American artist Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) created much of his
art from photographs—those he collected from mass media and those he shot
himself. Image Machine, which is drawn largely from the Rose Art Museum’s
permanent collection, focuses on how Warhol used photography throughout
his career as source material, medium, and subject matter. The phrase
“image machine” refers to both the artist himself—he produced tens of
thousands of photographs over his lifetime—and the technologies he
employed. Warhol adopted the image-making machines of popular culture,
including still cameras, movie cameras, and commercial silkscreen printing.

Image Machine is on view in the Lois Foster Gallery from September 17, 2013 - December 15, 2013. 

Please note that the exhibition will be closed on Thursday, October 31st for the purpose of annual administrative programming.
