UNTIL MARCH 21: “MOTION PICTURES” BY ANDY WARHOL AT MOMA, NY
  | Jan 07, 2011

An exhibition at the MOMA in New York City presents the cinematic work of  Andy Warhol. From early 1964 to November 1966 Warhol made nearly 500 silent, black-and-white films (also refered to as “Screen Tests”) of people mostly sitting still as if for photographic portraits and non-narrative films. Some performed and some reacted to off-camera questions and comments. He shot them on 16-millimeter film and showed them slightly slowed down so that they had a languid, meditative mood. Warhol’s Screen Tests reveal his lifelong fascination with the cult of celebrity, comprising a visual almanac of the 1960s downtown avant-garde scene.
