Blog / Warhol grant funds ‘The Record’


By Wendy

The Nasher Museum is benefiting yet again from the generosity of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
The exhibition “Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids,” on view through Feb. 21, came together because of gifts of Warhol photographs from the foundation. And we recently learned that the foundation has awarded a $100,000 grant to the Nasher Museum to support our upcoming exhibition, “The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl.”

“The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl” will bring together 32 artists from around the world who have worked with records, as both subject and medium, from the 1960s to the present. It will be on view Sept. 2, 2010, through Feb. 6, 2011.

“The Record” will include sound work, sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, video and performance. The exhibition is organized by Trevor Schoonmaker, the Nasher Museum’s curator of contemporary art.

A partial list of artists includes Laurie Anderson (USA), Felipe Barbosa (Brazil), David Byrne (Scotland), William Cordova (Peru), Jeroen Diepenmaat (Netherlands), Satch Hoyt (UK), Jasper Johns (USA), Taiyo Kimura (Japan), Tim Lee (Korea), Christian Marclay (USA), Mingering Mike (USA), Dave Muller (USA), Robin Rhode (South Africa), Dario Robleto (USA), Ed Ruscha (USA), Malick Sidibe (Mali), Xaviera Simmons (USA), Su-Mei Tse (Luxembourg), Fatimah Tuggar (Nigeria) and Carrie Mae Weems (USA).
