The gallery is presenting the late artist's life and work in an exhibition curated by Alison Gingeras.

Brigid Berlin, often regarded as Andy Warhol’s best friend, is getting the main character treatment in a new exhibition at Vito Schnabel gallery.  

The late artist is the subject of a comprehensive showcase at the gallery’s 43 Clarkson Street location in New York. “Brigid Berlin: The Heaviest” features selections of Berlin’s artwork, alongside mementos from her early childhood and later years. The exhibition title touches on the body weight struggles that defined Berlin’s psyche, while announcing her definitive role in art history alongside her more widely celebrated male colleagues. In this show, Warhol is a footnote to Berlin’s own stardom.
