A Nice Edition to Warhol’s “Empire”

The Art Institute of Chicago will bring a little bit of New York to the Windy City when it projects Andy Warhol’s 1964 film Empire (above) on the façade of the nearby Aon Center. Shot over six hours, but stretched to eight, the video of the Empire State Building will be shown on the upper stories of the high-rise, in this, its first outdoor presentation in the US. “The chance to do this in the hometown of the skyscraper was just too good to pass up,” says Matthew Witkovsky, the curator of the corresponding show, “Light Years: Conceptual Art and the Photograph, 1964-1977”, which will run from 13 December 2011 to 11 March 2012.
