THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 6:15 PM
You've seen Warhol's 1960s films; they're regularly screened at museums and cinematheques. Much has been said about these films, and this year marks the first authorized DVD release of a selection of these titles. But are you familiar with the artist's 1970s and 1980s video and television work? These are rarely seen or discussed. Join Carl Bogner and Thomas Schur of UW-Milwaukee as they discuss these works, redressing the balance, so to speak, and suggesting what role this televisual work might play in the construction of the myth of "late Warhol."
Join us again on Friday at 1:30 p.m. for behind-the-scenes information on the pieces screened tonight. Former Factory employee of nearly twenty years Vincent Fremont will be our special guest.
Presented as part of the 2009 Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival; see http://arts.uwm.edu/lgbtfilm for complete info. Sponsored by Johnson and Pabst LGBT Humanity Fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation
Free with Museum admission
