The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts was established in 1987; in late 2014, the Foundation completed years of planned giving in accordance with Andy Warhol’s will: “to further the advancement of the visual arts” by donating the majority of his unsold artwork to museums, colleges and universities in 48 states and 10 foreign countries. The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts received two separate donations of Warhol’s artwork from the Foundation. The first donation of 158 Polaroids and silver gelatin photographs resulted in our 2009 exhibition: Andy Warhol, A Photographic Legacy: Recent Gifts to the Turchin Center Permanent Collection. The second donation, received in 2013, consists of the six “off-edition” silkscreen prints included in Quicksilver: Recent Acquisitions from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Quicksilver pays homage to Andy Warhol’s original Factory (1950s – 1962/63), located at 1342 Lexington Avenue, coined the “Silver Factory” by its frequent visitors. Decorated by Warhol’s friend Billy Name, the entire loft, even the bathroom, was covered in tin foil, silver paint, and silver balloons that Warhol left floating in the space. Quicksilver provides a visceral immersion experience for the viewer, showcasing the six silkscreen prints now part of the Turchin Center’s permanent collection.
