Dickey Family Lecture Hall

Vinyl (1965) 6:45pm

16mm, b/w, sound,66 min

Warhol’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange features Warhol protégé Gerard Malanga in the role of the no-good youth, Alex (here, Victor).

In Couch, visitors to the Factory were invited to “perform” on camera, seated on Warhol’s illustrious couch. Part film, part documentary, Couch  features figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac, and perennial New York figure, Taylor Mead.

The Tampa Museum of Art will show seven films by Andy Warhol. The exhibition in galleries celebrates Andy Warhol, the printmaker, this Film Series will celebrate Andy Warhol, the filmmaker, and his unique ability to create enduring imagery and transcend boundaries across disparate media.
