Summary

Summary

Gerard Malanga was chief assistant at Andy Warhol's legendary Factory in New York from 1963 to 1970.


As well as helping Warhol produce many, now instantly recognizable, works of art, Malanga also appeared in several Warhol movies--including "Couch" and "Chelsea Girls" -- and was the Velvet Underground's notorious "whip dancer." He has since been widely published as a poet and photographer in his own right.

"Archiving Warhol "is Malanga's first major book publication on Warhol and his years at the Factory. Primarily a collection of his many writings on, and interviews with, Andy Warhol over the years, it is heavily illustrated with photographs from Malanga's personal archive, including many shots published here for the first time. Subjects include members of Warhol's enigmatic entourage such as Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Edie Sedgwick, Nico, Bob Dylan, and of course Warhol and Malanga himself.

"Archiving Warhol "provides a unique historical insight into Andy Warhol's art and philosophy, and is an invaluable document of the Warhol 1960s, one of the most crucial and innovative periods in modern art.
