Billy Name: The Silver Age

The current show at Milk Gallery shows yet unseen photos of Andy Warhol's Silver FactoryBilly Name's photographs from this period (1964-68) are one of the most important photographic documents of any single artist in history. Billy lived in a tiny closet at the Factory. He was responsible for the legendary ‘silverizing’ of the space using aluminium paint and aluminium foil to complete the installation. When Andy gave Billy a Pentax Honeywell 35mm camera, he took on the role of resident photographer and archivist.

show is opened until December 7
