Bibbe Hansen, pop cultural icon, performance artist, musician, and actress known for her work with Andy Warhol will visit the University at Albany for as part of “The Creative Life: Conversation Series” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 5 at the University Art Museum on UAlbany’s Uptown campus.
The Creative Life series is a major arts initiative of the University Art Museum, New York State Writers Institute and UAlbany Performing Arts Center in conjunction with us here at WAMC and with major support from the University at Albany Foundation.
Bibbe Hansen first achieved prominence as a protégé of American pop artist Andy Warhol. She collaborated on several films with Warhol, including “PRISON,” which she starred in alongside Marie Mencken and Edie Sedgwick. From 1990–1995 she operated Troy Café, which became the center of a multicultural renaissance in downtown Los Angeles and was home to a generation of musicians, comedians, artists, and filmmakers. Today Bibbe creates artwork and is represented by Gracie Mansion Gallery in New York City. She recently completed the first draft of her memoirs, and lectures frequently on art and the creative process.
