Neil Printz Will Discuss the Public and Private Aspects of Andy Warhol’s Art
Marlboro, VT— On October 14, at 7:30 p.m. at the Marlboro College Graduate Center, editor Neil Printz will present case histories from the Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonné, a scholarly project dedicated to cataloguing every painting, sculpture, and drawing that Warhol made. When it was published, John Waters, filmmaker, remarked, “I stayed in bed all day and read every single word of it. It’s a ‘page turner’: part detective novel, part ‘how-to’ book, and from cover to cover, perfect art history.”
Printz will present and discuss the evidentiary procedures of art history: “clues” discovered in the archives, the expert “testimony” of witnesses, and the material “evidence” of Warhol’s work itself, as part of his talk, “Common Objects and Hidden Treasures: Public and Private Aspects of Warhol’s Work.”
Printz earned a Ph.D. and a M. Phil. in Art History from the Graduate Center in the City University of New York. He received his M.A. and B.A. in Art History from the University of Michigan. Currently, Printz serves on the Board of Directors of the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board and is the editor for the Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné. Printz has held curatorial positions at a range of art institutions including the National Collection of Fine Arts in the Smithsonian, the Holly Solomon Gallery and The Menil Collection and has published a range or articles.
This lecture is part of the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center’s lecture series related to the exhibit “Andy Warhol: The Jon Gould Collection.” Marlboro College is the host of the series and all lectures will take place at the Marlboro College Graduate Center at 28 Vernon Street. General admission is $4; free admission is extended to BMAC members and Marlboro College students, staff and faculty.
