“Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes” – Andy Warhol. The pop-art genius and touchstone for a generation of New York artists, musicians, and stars poked convention, making masterpieces out of Polaroids of the famous, Campbell’s Tomato Soup cans, Brillo Pads, and his motley crew at the Factory. The shy, bespectacled kid from Pittsburgh’s fifteen minutes now approaches fifty years as Warhol is considered one of the most important artists in history. Andrew Rossi bases his six-part docuseries The Andy Warhol Diaries on Warhol’s notes, edited and published by Pat Hackett in 1989, revealing his private life in incredible detail. Rossi adds present-day interviews with those closest to him to bring the man, time and place to vivid life. Revelation after revelation! What a treat. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Rossi from New York.
THE ANDY WARHOL DIARIES debuts March 9th on Netflix
