While art can take many different forms, so can the artists who creates it.
On Thursday, February 28, the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery at Keene State College held a screening of Andy Warhol’s film, Sleep. According to the Throne, the screening was held “To celebrate the current Thorne exhibition cLIck\CliQue: A Warhol Experience.” The exhibit was recently reopened for the Spring Semester.
The film screening was a collaborative effort by the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery and the Film Studies Program, and was officially finalized on Feb. 27 according to the Throne Art Gallery’s Facebook. The event was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and last until 1 a.m. This was so attendees had the opportunity to watch the entirety of the five hour film. Attendees were invited to bring sleeping bags and bedding to make themselves more comfortable during the film.
Prior to the film, those at the event were given a brief tour of the current Andy Warhol exhibit. There was then a short presentation as Andy Warhol as a filmmaker and then the film began. Throughout the night, the Thorne provides refreshment and late night snacks. The film was shown on the original 16mm print, which was loaned from the Museum of Modern Art [MoMA] archives.
Additionally, there was a student video competition during the event, with cash prizes given out the the winners.
The event was free for those who attended.
