“If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.”
-Andy Warhol
.
"Warhol lived in a coded world in the 1960s, when homosexuality was illegal, bars were being raided, people were being arrested or blackmailed, and the desire for a male lover had to be kept under wraps." -Gary Garrels, curator at SFMOMA to @bayareareporter.
.
Take a closer look at the stylistic arc of Warhol's prolific film practice in the series, Films by Andy Warhol: Factory Fantasies, Hollywood Dreams. Created at a time when queer life was policed + New York underground cinema faced censorship, Warhol's films often exhibit queer expressions of gender, sexuality, and desire.

Predating the digital social networks of today, Warhol's network was extensive, but did anyone truly know the real Andy? From Jean-Michel Basquiat and Lou Reed to Valerie Solanas, #Warhol's circle was a massive index of "who's who" in society.

#HappyFathersDay to all you dads out there!
.
On June 11, 1997, the French engineer Philippe Kahn connected his camera to his cellphone and then to his laptop in order to send by email, to about two thousand contacts, a message containing a link to the portrait of his newborn daughter. Kahn's groundbreaking digital announcement is credited to be the first digital photograph ever sent by cellphone.
.
Want to see this photo as well as the equipment Kahn used in 1997? This work is now on view at SFMOMA in the exhibition "snap+share" on Floor 3. .

When you look at your phone, does it look back? 💭
.
@kjhollen devised an app that automatically recorded her own cellphone usage over a period of one month. The camera captured her habits, expressions, and neuroses as she sends texts, reads articles, uses GPS, + answers emails.
