Andy Warhol, our Patron Saint of Art and Don’t Give a Fuck, in this 1964 interview responded to questions regarding his Brillo Box exhibit.
Interviewer: Andy do you feel that the public has insulted your art?
Andy Warhol: Uh, no.
Well, why not?
Uh, well I haven’t thought about it.
It doesn’t bother you at all then?
Well, do you think they’ve shown a lack of appreciation for what pop art means?
Andy, do you think that pop art has reached the point where it’s becoming repetitious now?
Do you think it should break away from being pop art?
Are you just going to carry on?
The Stable Gallery, NYC, 1964
Now showing at The Andy Warhol Museum is Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years. “For decades, critics have observed that Andy Warhol exerted an enormous impact on contemporary art, but no exhibition has yet explored the full nature or extent of that influence. Through approximately forty-five works by Warhol alongside one hundred works by some sixty other artists, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years juxtaposes prime examples of Warhol’s paintings, sculpture, and films with those by other artists who in key ways reinterpret, respond, or react to his groundbreaking work. What emerges is a fascinating dialogue between works of art and artists across generations. Organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art with major loans from the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum, Regarding Warhol will be installed throughout the museum and reveal Warhol’s extraordinary impact on contemporary art production” (The Andy Warhol Museum).
