13 Most Beautiful

Please note: This film screening will be screened at 2pm and on an ongoing loop for the afternoon. Also at 2pm, we will offer guests a special ‘last-call’ guided tour of current exhibition “Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection“, which is on view through the end of day Sunday (September 8). The brief tour and film screening (combined) should take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Both activities are free with Museum membership or regular museum admission.

In the 1960s, artist Andy Warhol filmed a series of what he called Screen Tests, each silent film lasting for approximately two minutes. Warhol slowed the finished films to a length of about four minutes each, creating intimate portraits of friends, Factory regulars and well-known artists. This particular film includes original music written for the Screen Tests and includes portraits of musician Lou Reed, actor Dennis Hopper, model and musician Nico and others.

Held in conjunction with the Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection
