"Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids," a new exhibition at the NASHER, on the Duke campus  gives rare insight into the mind of the artist who wanted to capture the world like a camera.  Indeed HE was ahead of everyone- and wouldn't HE be impressed with his own more than 15 minutes?

"In the future, 
everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." 

The Big Shots show features about 250 Polaroids and 70 silver gelatin black & white prints taken Andy from 1969 to 1986. Many of them are on public view for the first time.

"Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids" is organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; the Ackland Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Greensboro. All three institutions received gifts of about 100 original Polaroid photographs and 50 gelatin silver black-and-white prints in 2008, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, a division of the Andy Warhol Foundation in New York.

 the exhibition will open from Nov 12 through Feb 21, 2010.
