The Films of Andy Warhol 1963-65: Barbican Cinema, 6.15pm

Barbican introduction:

Across the important period of 1963 - 1965, when Andy Warhol would first begin to work with film, he created multiple seminal works, that would rank among his most iconic and celebrated films, including Sleep (1963) and Empire (1964). This event will provide a rare opportunity to see a number of the films on 16mm. After the screening we will be joined by esteemed curators and writers John G. Hanhardt  and Dr. Elena Gorfinkel who will discuss the creative approaches and conceptual innovations which this period of Warhol’s career was characterised by. Following this conversation, audience members will be invited to the cinema foyer for a wine reception. This special event coincides with the announcement of The Films of Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne - 1963-1965 being awarded the 2022 Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for best Moving Image Book.
