Cantor Arts Center, just off Palm Drive, at Museum Way and Lomita Drive Map

The program examines Andy Warhol's wide-ranging participation in the gay culture of the 1970s, from photographs of drag queens to sexually explicit imagery. A presentation by exhibition co-curator Richard Meyer, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History, will be followed by spotlight tours in the galleries.

In the exhibition Contact Warhol, see the first public display of images from the Cantor’s remarkable archive of Andy Warhol’s photographic contact sheets, along with other examples of the artist’s iconic work.

This exhibition and accompanying catalogue are organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Office of the President, Stanford University.

Please be advised that some images in this exhibition may not be appropriate for young viewers.
