Andy Warhol Index on display in the Architecture & Art Library


Photographer Nat Finkelstein (1933-2009) entered Andy Warhol’s Factory as a photojournalist in 1964. He, along with Warhol and others, contributed to 1968’s The Andy Warhol Index. In 1992, Finkelstein released – in a limited, numbered edition of 200 copies – A Catalogue as Multiple: Andy Warhol. Newly acquired by the William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library, “the catalogue…consists of a handmade wooden box… the top and bottom of which have a silk screened portrait of Warhol made and signed by Nat Finkelstein. The box contains a mirror with a silk screened portrait of Nico, an Andy Warhol bottle, a rubber ball, and a catalogue – in loose sheets – describing more than a hundred various Andy Warhol items.”–Prospectus.

Both The Andy Warhol Index and A Catalogue as Multiple: Andy Warhol (its contents displayed) are currently on view upstairs at the Architecture and Art Library. Pop in for a peek at some Pop art artifacts.
