Andy Warhol Dreams of God Related Press Andy Warhol Dreams of God 2 November 2019, Hyperallergic

PITTSBURGH — That Andy Warhol was a lifelong practicing Byzantine (i.e. Eastern) Catholic is not a secret. At least one book is devoted to his religious concerns. His biographers and some critics note that most of the women and men in the Factory were lapsed believers. And he made paintings, especially late in life, with explicit Christian...

Andy Warhol: Everything is Good Related Press Andy Warhol: Everything is Good 31 October 2019, Gagosian Quarterly

Since Warhol 's death in 1987 a lot of attention has been given to his pre-Pop work–his late-1940s student paintings, his '50s commercial art (book jackets, advertising drawings), and the personal work he made for friends and to charm art directors (handmade books, handbill calling cards). It's unusual for an artist's juvenilia to get so much...

Three decades after Andy Warhol's death, he remains one of America's most provocative artists.

Fifty Years of Photography: Stephen Shore’s Retrospective Related Press Fifty Years of Photography: Stephen Shore’s Retrospective 28 February 2018, Frieze

The wall text that introduces Stephen Shore's retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, which features of 50 years of chronologically-arranged photography, states, puzzlingly, that Shore's images 'seem to achieve perfect neutrality, in both subject matter and approach.' Isn't neutrality, like 'originality', just another modernist myth? And isn't...

John Giorno Related Press John Giorno 25 July 2017, artforum.com

I learned early on from the eats, such as Allen Ginsburg and William Burroughs—and the Pop artists too—that archives were very important. This was around the late 1950s, or the beginning of the '60s. So, I just saved all of my work. My parents had a house in Roslyn Heights, Long Island, and for fifty years I brought everything I made...

Young men and women recline on their backs, some shirtless, staring at the camera confrontationally, or smoking, aloof. They are often serious and sexy. They are the subjects of Andy Warhol‘s screen tests, where visitors to his studio, the Factory, sat alone with a rolling video camera. The silent footage occupies a large wall at the Andy Warhol...
