Bob Colacello, author of Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up and former editor of Interview magazine, in conversation with David M. Rubenstein, cofounder and co-CEO of The Carlyle Group, chairman of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and trustee of the National Gallery of Art

Andy Warhol may not have coined the phrase “15 minutes of fame,” but it is often associated with him because of his unique, genre-bending legacy as a celebrity artist. This conversation revisits 15 minutes of fame today, when technological advances make the idea feel all the more real.

The discussion will be streamed live here.

This program is coordinated with the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies.
