In conjunction with the exhibition Andy Warhol: My Perfect Body, James Elkins speaks about the limits of the representation of the body in contemporary and postmodern art, with reference to Andy Warhol's work. Building on the arguments that he established in his seminal text Pictures of the Body: Pain & Metamorphosis, Elkins makes the case that Warhol’s work is a model for problems of abstraction and body image. A Q&A led by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art, follows. This program serves as a closing event for the exhibition Andy Warhol: My Perfect Body.
