This presentation of Sunset, the unfinished 1967 film by Andy Warhol, showcases a rare work by the artist that was commissioned by John and Dominique de Menil for an ecumenical chapel at the 1968 San Antonio World’s Fair. Warhol was asked to create a work of spiritual significance to be displayed within a contemplative space, a concept similar to what the de Menils were establishing for the Rothko Chapel. The film was virtually unknown until the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, restored and re-released the work in 2000 as part of The Andy Warhol Film Project. Organized by Curator Michelle White, screenings of the 16mm film will be held in the east temporary gallery at 6pm every evening when the museum is open.
