"Andy Warhol: Screen Tests Presented at MoMA QNS"
2003-05-08 until 2003-09-01
Museum of Modern Art
New York, NY, USA

These 3- to 5-minute screen tests, among Warhol's most complex series of portraits, were filmed from early 1964 to November 1966 and feature Dennis Hopper, Salvador Dali, Lou Reed, Edie Sedgwick, and other artists, actors, writers, models, and musicians, as well as visitors to Warhol's Factory, where all the filming was done.

Each of his subjects was shot straight on with a static camera, using no sound and with minimal light that Warhol positioned in increasingly inventive ways to add shade and character to his subjects. The results are as distinct as the subjects themselves. The Museum will present on eight screens a selection of the approximately 500 screen tests Warhol shot, with each screen playing a loop of several portraits. Organized by Mary Lea Bandy, Chief Curator, Department of Film and Media, and Natalie Hirniak, Department Manager, Department of Film and Media.
