Vincent Fremont on Andy Warhol, TV Mastermind

Andy Warhol began experimenting with ideas for his own television shows after purchasing portable video equipment in 1970. The artist was quoted as saying that “cable TV is the ultimate America.” Filmmaker and producer Vincent Fremont was a member of Warhol’s inner circle for nearly 20 years, working as vice-president of Andy Warhol Enterprises, developing film projects and helping to establish The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. At this talk, Fremont explores the 42 television episodes Warhol created with guest stars Debbie Harry, Steven Spielberg, Liza Minnelli and more.
