This Friday night, The Whitney Museum of American Art will host a talk and reading titled “My Life with Warhol.” At the event, some of Andy Warhol’s close associates will come together to reflect on their personal experiences and interactions with the artist, showing the ways in which those interactions informed Warhol’s art.

Donna De Salvo, deputy director for International Initiatives and Senior Curator, will moderate the discussion, with speakers Irving Blum, Bob Calacello, and Vincent Fremont.

The event corresponds with the Whitney’s current exhibition Andy Warhol — From A to B and Back Again, which opened on Monday and continues through March 31, 2019.

Tickets to the event are $15 and can be purchased online here. For any fan of Warhol, this is a conversation not to be missed.
