Join art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto as he discusses his critically acclaimed book Andy Warhol, published by Yale University Press. Selected as one of the “Best Art and Photography Books” of 2009 by The Daily Beast, Danto’s book was described by Publishers Weekly as a synthesis of “biography, cultural criticism and aesthetics… [that] reveals aspects of Warhol so far uncovered and unexplored that will appeal widely to the interested generalist as well as to scholars.” Danto is Johnsonian Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Columbia University and former art critic for The Nation. Sponsored by the BMA Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art.
