As one of Andy Warhol’s ten nieces and nephews, Warhola is able provide far more than just his interpretations of Warhol’s art, some of which is currently on display at the museum. At lectures across the U.S., Warhola gives his audiences a rare glimpse into the private life of one of America’s most celebrated contemporary artists.
At the Gallery Talk, Warhola will share his memories of visiting his uncle’s house as a child, as well as some of his experiences working for Warhol after graduating college in 1986. He will also speak about some of the personal struggles Warhol faced throughout his life, including the loss of his father at age 13.
Warhola is the vice president and liaison to the Andy Warhol Foundation at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The foundation seeks to fund work that is particularly “experimental, under-recognized, or challenging in nature,” and was established in 1987 in accordance with Andy Warhol’s will.
