With this exhibition, the Snite Museum of Art marks the fall 2011 residency of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company at Notre Dame. Andy Warhol (1928–1987) was an important figure in the generation of post-war visual artists and challenged the division of fine art and popular imagery by incorporating photographs, mass media, and commercial elements into work that came to be known as Pop Art. Warhol was one of several artists, including Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, who further tested the traditional limits of genre through revolutionary collaborations with Merce Cunningham. Warhol’s Camera commemorates the spirit of innovation that marks the work of both Warhol and Cunningham and offers a welcome opportunity to debut highlights of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts' 2008 gift to the Snite Museum of Art of 106 Polaroid photographs and 49 gelatin silver print photographs.
