CAPTURING FAME: PHOTOGRAPHS AND PRINTS BY ANDY WARHOL

JUNE 2 – JULY 26, 2015

Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (lower level)

From 1970 to 1987 Warhol took scores of Polaroid and black-and-white photographs, the vast majority of which have never been seen by the public. These images often served as the basis for his commissioned portraits, silkscreened paintings, drawings, and prints. While the Polaroid portraits reveal Warhol’s profound and frank engagement with the personality in front of his lens, the gelatin silver prints point to his extraordinary compositional skill, his eye for detail, and his compulsive desire to document the world around him. Taken together, these photographs survey the scope of Warhol’s aesthetic interests and demonstrate the reach of his curious, far-roaming eye.

Capturing Fame: Photographs and Prints by Andy Warhol was made possible by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc., and the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. Additional support for conservation matting and framing was provided by Robert N. Davies '58 in memory and honor of Mary Ellen Guyer Davies.

Highlights from the Arthur E. Klauser '45 Asian and World Community Collection

semi-permanent display

Emison Building (Office of Admission), Shidzuo Iikubo '23 Gallery of Asian Art

In 1991, DePauw received the Arthur E. Klauser '45 Asian and World Community Collection. The gift included Buddhist art, notably icons and mandalas, objects related to Japanese noh theater and samurai culture, painted screens, and woodblock prints from the 18th and 19th centuries. Selected objects from this collection are currently displayed in the Shidzuo Iikubo Gallery, a dedicated exhibition space for Asian art. The gallery was  generously funded by Hirotsugu "Chuck" Iikubo '57 in honor of his father, Shidzuo Iikubo, a graduate of the Class of 1923.

A website was developed for the Shidzuo Iikubo '23 Gallery by a DePauw winter term class in 2013. The course, co-taught by Professor Ota and Craig Hadley, resulted in new interpretive text panels and a guided audio tour. Click here to visit the website.
