The Gen Z Time Capsule

Pittsburgh City Paper: “The Andy Warhol Museum showcases young voices with Gen-Z Time Capsule project”

“Andy Warhol made collecting things part of his work, eventually turning the practice into Time Capsules, a project where he filled and taped up boxes with items from his daily life. Those boxes – containing an estimated 500,000 objects – are being opened and cataloged by The Andy Warhol Museum staff, giving insight to the Pittsburgh-born artist’s process and eccentricities.

In honor of this project, The Warhol launched Gen-Z Time Capsule, an effort calling on young people born between 1997-2012 to submit photos of objects they believe best represent their generation’s experience. The Gen-Z Time Capsule will become an online exhibition and publication featuring submissions from people all over the world, including in the Pittsburgh region.

“Hopefully this digital archive will tell a comprehensive story about the objects, activities, places, and people that are most important to Generation Z,” says Nicole Dezelon, associate director of learning at The Warhol.”
