The Lyon, the Which and the Warhol
Celebrating 50 Years of the Hofstra University Museum
January 14 - May 19, 2013
David Filderman Gallery
Culling from the Museum’s extensive photography collection, this exhibition offers photographs by photojournalist Danny Lyon and visionary Pop artist, Andy Warhol, connecting them to works in other media by Chuck Close, Jim Dine, and Lisbeth Firmin (the “Which”.) The exhibit emphasizes parallels between these artists in their use of indirect portraiture, physical presence and their creative process.
