Pomona art history major Carrie Dedon will present a lecture on the current exhibition in the Pomona College Museum of Art, “Famous for 15: From Andy Warhol to Your Camera Phone,” which she curated.
“Famous for 15” examines the phenomenon of photo-based fame through Andy Warhol’s practice and its modern parallel of camera-phone photographs. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Polariods and black and white prints by Andy Warhol from the 159 photographs given to the Pomona College Museum of Art in 2008 by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts through the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. In addition to the Warhol photographs, contemporary camera-phone photos will be projected in the gallery as part of the exhibition.
Carrie Dedon is the first recipient of the recently endowed Kilsby Museum Internship. A generous gift establishing the Graham “Bud” ’55 and Mary Ellen ’56 Kilsby Endowment Fund for Student Interns at the Pomona College Museum of Art supports Museum internships for Pomona College students interested in the arts.
