Callie Angell, Andy Warhol Screen Tests



For fifteen years, Callie Angell has been living with Andy Warhol--at least with all 290 hours of his film work. The adjunct curator of the Andy Warhol Film Project at the Whitney Museum of American Art joins host Michael Rush to talk about her recently completed first volume of Andy Warhol Screen Tests and the previously much-overlooked significance of Warhol's widely influential film and video works. Discussing the photographic elements of his Screen Tests and the "overdeterminedness" of his films and their creative impetus, Angell brings new light to many of the innovative practices behind his work, as well as the collaborative and essentially multimedia approach that he took to art, the egalitarian spirit of his warehouse in many ways embodying this. Angell also discusses the focus of his attraction to fame and celebrity and explains why she considers him to be the opposite of a conceptual artist, speaking to the "radical literalness" of his art (29 minutes).
