Event Map:


Blake Gopnik conducted extensive research to create an in-depth look into Andy Warhol from historical to social to artistic perspectives. Gopnik gives us the clearest documentation to date of a mysterious man and an artist who constantly avoided definition, and whose work continues to impact our art and culture today. Blake Gopnik is the author of  "Warhol," the definitive biography of the Pop Art artist. He has been the staff critic at the Globe and Mail, the Washington Post and Newsweek, and critic-at-large for ArtInfo and Artnet News. He is a regular contributor to The New York Times and posts his Friday Pic on his website blakegopnik.com and his Warhol findings at warholiana.com. He holds a Ph.D. in Art History from Oxford University.
