If you happen to be at the New York Design Center from now till October 7, be sure to stop by the 1stdibs Gallery for a new exhibition, I’ll Be Your Mirror: Photographs by Andy Warhol from the Private Collection of Warhol’s Inner Circle. The show, presented by 1stdibs Gallery and Hedges Projects, brings together 150 black-and-white silver gelatin and Polaroid photographs by Andy Warhol from the private collections of his assistant Pat Hackett. Also on view are never before seen photos taken by Sam Bolton, Warhol’s last studio assistant, and rare and important Warhol photographs from the private collection of Jim Hedges, the owner of Hedges Projects and the show’s curator.

Included are photos of some of Warhol’s most famous—and infamous—subjects arranged around four key areas. There’s Andy Warhol’s Nightlife with Scenes from Studio 54, which features 8x10 black-and-white photos of Liza Minnelli, Halston and Bette Midler, to name just a few; The World of Mick Jagger and his Ladies has appearances by Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall, Tina Turner, Ron Wood and Patty Hansen; Newly Released Works by Sam Bolton offers never-before-seen photographs taken by Sam Bolton, Warhol’s last studio assistant; and Serialities, which touches on Warhol’s favorite diptychs and highlight everything from Nancy Reagan to drag queens to chandeliers to urinals.

Of the Serialities, Hedges says, “For Warhol, examining a subject as many times as possible increased the subject's relevance and importance.” He adds, “Throughout his career, he was obsessed with the notion of seriality and repetition. he even called his artist studio, The Factory—a place from which he made art like a machine. In fact, as an artist, Warhol removed the hand of the artist as few before him had ever done.  He obsessively replicated the same images, engaging with his subject in a cinematic manner.”
