Regarding Warhol, Sixty Artists, Fifty Years

I had recently gotten back from Atlanta, so this Elvis piece was really speaking to me. Missing Sister Louisa's Church!

This is a throwback, but when the Metropolitan Museum was having the Andy Warhol Exhibit they threw a Factory themed party where you could go see the exhibit after hours with a valid student ID for free. It was awesome, here’s a peep.

 

The exhibit juxtaposed Warhol with some pieces by other contemporary pop artists. This is a wall by famous Japanese artists Takashi Murakami.

The exhibit focused on Warhol’s influence on art over the decades. They showcased this through art work not only by Warhol but by other contemporary artists that he paved the way for such as Murakami above and Jeff Koons. One of the most outrageous was Hans Haacke’s larger than life cigarettes.
