On Friday, November 30 at 6:30 pm, join us at the Whitney for a conversation and screening inspired by works on view in #AndyWarhol—From A to B and Back Again. Art historians Trevor Fairbrother and Nina Schleif discuss Warhol's depictions of queer desire, his collaborations with the photographer Otto Fenn, and the social milieu of New York’s gay subculture during the McCarthy era. The conversation is followed by a screening of Jerett Robert Austin’s Camille. _ Film still from Camille (1953). Image courtesy Cherry Grove Archives Collection

Did you know: shoes were an integral part of #Warhol’s professional identity during the 1950s. 👠 Papered onto the wall in our 5th floor galleries are ads that he created for the shoemaker I. Miller—his most significant commercial client. The series of framed shoes pictured here were what @life magazine called "his crazy golden slippers.” Each shoe was dedicated to a different celebrity, such as #JudyGarland, #ElvisPresley, and trans advocate #ChristineJorgensen. Swipe ➡️ to see the high-heeled shoe he named after #TrumanCapote, and tap the link in our profile to get to know "Warhol before Warhol." #WarholxWhitney#WarholWednesday
