The Factory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Factory

The Factory was the name of Andy Warhol's New York City studio, which had three different locations between 1962 and 1984. The original Factory was on the fifth floor at 231 East 47th Street, in Midtown Manhattan. The rent was "only about one hundred dollars a year".

Lizzie Luiz Ytzhak's insight:

In this task I learned about  Andy Warho's life , and about his Factory.  I also learned about Warhol's work around the Factory (music, art, films and more) and about the characters who worked there. With the videos I found, I was introduced to the atmosphere and life at the factory. I chose this topic because I studied art before, and had prior knowledge about Andy Warhol and the Factory. Yet, I learned and discovered new things about the subject. The task was very interesting and I'm glad I got to know and experience  this web site through this task.

With short hair spray-painted silver to match Warhol's look, Sedgwick became known for her fashionable style, which included leotards, short dresses and large, dangling earrings. For her larger-than-life demeanor, Warhol nicknamed her "Superstar.

Altough he was primarily a visual artist and filmmaker, Warhol attracted celebrities and artists of all kinds to The Factory. The studio became a magnet for hipsters, artists and socialites, and a hub for experimentation of all kinds. It was located in midtown Manhattan on E. 47th St. for years, before moving to Union Square in 1968. Over time, The Factory became the "go to" place to be for the glitterati.

Lizzie Luiz Ytzhak's insight:

Warhol superstars were a clique of New York City personalities promoted by Andy Warhol during the 1960s and early 1970s. These personalities appeared in Warhol's artworks and accompanied him in his social life. They epitomized Warhol's famous dictum: "In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." Warhol would simply film them, and declare them "superstars"
