Superstar: What Andy Warhol know about contemporary celebrity

0 out of 5


During this lecture we will discover the world of Andy Warhol’s art, offering insights into his profound understanding of the role of media in shaping contemporary celebrity culture. The talk will examine Warhol’s iconic silkscreen prints and groundbreaking film work, exploring how these early endeavours laid the foundation for his exploration of celebrity and media imagery. We’ll also uncover the ways in which he challenged traditional notions of art and embraced the ubiquitous presence of mass media in our daily lives. However, the heart of the discussion lies in Warhol’s late-career work on American icons. Through an in-depth analysis of his portrayals of iconic figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, we’ll gain valuable insights into Warhol’s prophetic vision of contemporary media culture.
