Lecture: From Warhol to Who?
Sat, Mar 3, 11am-12pm

In the second of two lectures that analyze the High Museum/MoMA partnership and current exhibition, Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters, Michael Rooks, Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art; High Museum, Katherine Smith, Asst. Professor of Art, Agnes Scott College; and Artistic Director Stuart Horodner propose a hypothetical exhibition about mastery and methodology, featuring a diverse roster of contemporary artists, called From Warhol to Who? which would examine politics, diversity, collaboration, and the abject. They will explain their choices and show images of possible artworks.
