From 1963 to 1968 Warhol produced hundreds of 16mm films. Drawing from a wide range of genres and styles, he consistently worked to redefine both the viewing experience and the practice of filmmaking itself. In his most experimental projects, he pushed the audience’s limits with lengthy films, constructed new definitions of cinematic performance, and embraced the flaws inherent to the material characteristics of film itself, accepting the occurrence of accident, chance, and imperfection.
Presented on the occasion of the exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, this series explores some of the singular film works of Andy Warhol.
