(September 2–October 14, 2004)
In 1964, Pop artist Andy Warhol commissioned David McCabe, a young British fashion photographer, to document his life for one year. The result was a unique portrait of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century and a compelling behind-the-scenes look at the New York City art world at a time when Pop art was becoming the latest incarnation of the avant-garde. Unpublished until now, these remarkable photographs are currently the focus of a new book, A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol: Photographs by David McCabe, as well as the subject of this companion exhibition. Descriptions and reminiscences (taken from the book) by Factory insider David Dalton, one of Warhol’s first assistants, will accompany David McCabe’s photographs.
