Here is one way to make a first impression.
“’A car pulled up outside my apartment and out came Brigid, topless, wearing a red sarong around her neck and a toy stethoscope, and carrying a fake alligator doctor’s bag filled with amphetamines and a giant syringe. She came up and chased me around the room trying to poke me with the needle.
“’We became everyday friends.’”
That was how Danny Fields, a member of Andy Warhol’s inner circle, remembered meeting Brigid Berlin ….

You know I tried that same strategy once but it went horribly wrong. Luckily I later became friends with Danny in a less dramatic way..

We’re saddened to hear of artist Brigid Berlin’s passing. She was a close friend of Warhol and appeared in many of his films, including “Chelsea Girls” (1966). Brigid also worked with him at Interview Magazine.
She is featured in our current exhibition, “Femme Touch”, and will be greatly missed.
