Instantaneous Beauty: Andy Warhol and the Photographic Process

Opening Reception and Film Screenings

Thursday, May 19, 2022

6:00pm – 8:00pm 

Join us for the opening reception of Instantaneous Beauty at the University of Houston-Clear Lake Art Art Gallery.

The opening night program at UHCL will include a screening of a selection from Warhol’s famed Screen Tests courtesy of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. These short films made between 1964 and 1966 serve as “living portraits” of pop culture and art world notables including Salvador Dalí, Bob Dylan, Marcel Duchamp, Jane Holzer, Dennis Hopper, Niki de Saint Phalle, and Edie Sedgewick. Considered by Warhol as end products in themselves, his Screen Tests are the perfect complement to the photographic portraits on view in the Instantaneous Beauty exhibition.
