On Television

Unidentified Woman #23 (Blonde Hair & Dog), 1986 Polaroid by Andy Warhol
Warhol Exhibition
From Andy Warhol's "15 minutes" concept to the work of modern artists like Tina Barney & Alec Soth, celebrity and intimacy captured in a single instant has been one of the hallmarks of photography. University Beat on WUSF TV takes a look at a pair of exhibitions currently on display at the USF Contemporary Art Museum.

On the Radio

Family Commission with Snake (Waterfalls), 2007, by Tina Barney
Warhol Exhibition

Andy Warhol once said that “A good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person doing something unfamous.” You can see almost two hundred pictures Warhol took of people both famous and ‘unfamous’ on display at the USF Contemporary Art Museum. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes a closer look at the exhibit, as well as a companion display of work by modern photographers who are following Warhol’s example.
