Empire, 1964

(16mm film, 8 hr., 5 min.)

Shot in one continuous take over the course of a single evening, Warhol’s eight-hour-long, durational magnum opus, Empire (1964), is both a filmic portrait of one of the world’s most iconic buildings and a meditation on temporality.  According to Warhol, the point of the film—perhaps his most famous and influential cinematic work—is to "see time go by."
