Glam plus Bam: Andy Warhol and Harold Edgerton photos on display in Trustman Art Gallery
The Trustman Art Gallery brings together photographs from artists Andy Warhol and Harold Edgerton in its latest exhibit, Glam plus Bam--Warhol and Edgerton: Photos from the Simmons College Collection, on display now through October 6.
The Andy Warhol photographs presented are the color Polariods he took in preparation for his famous silkscreen portraits of celebrities and art glitterati. Among the selected photos are a young Joe Kennedy, Carly Simon, Jackie Curtis, and Ivan Karp.
Harold Edgerton, MIT scientist and inventor, is perhaps best known for his photographs that captured the moment. The Trustman exhibit displays his most iconic work, including Death of a Light Bulb, Bullet Through Apple (left) and Tumblers.
So, what brings the artists' work to Simmons? The collection of photographs were received as gifts to the College from the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, and the Harold and Esther Edgerton Family Foundation. Glam plus Bam is the first time the two artist have been shown together in Boston.
The Trustman Art Gallery is free and open to the public.
