Translating Warhol: A Symposium


Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: University of Pennsylvania (symposium location)
Deadline: Mon, June 24th, 2024

The Penn Libraries is pleased to announce that it will host an international symposium, “Translating Warhol,” supported by a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art.

“Translating Warhol” will be held June 23 and 24, 2022, in the Class of ‘78 Pavilion at the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts in the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center at the University of Pennsylvania.

Andy Warhol is one of the most famous and influential artists of the twentieth century, and a vast global literature about Warhol and his work exists. Yet almost nothing has been written about the role of translations of his words in his international reputation. “Translating Warhol” aims to fill this gap, developing the topic in multiple directions and in the context of the reception of Warhol’s work in various countries. The numerous translations of Warhol’s writings, words, and ideas offer a fertile case study of how American art was, and is, viewed from the outside.

The symposium is free and open to the public, but registration is required. 

For a full schedule of topics and speakers and links to register for either in-person or online attendance, please visit the symposium website: https://www.library.upenn.edu/about/exhibits-events/warhol-at-penn-again?tab=1

To complement the symposium, an exhibition featuring translations of Warhol’s interviews and books will be on view at the Kislak Center. A series of related exhibitions will also be on display, all part of a larger program entitled Andy Warhol@Penn Again.
