ON&BY ANDY WARHOL. Ed. by Gilda Williams. Whitechapel Gallery Ventures Limited, London, 2016. Published in association with MIT Press, Cambridge. 272 pp. 21 x 15 cm. LC 2015-40616 ISBN 9780262528689 In English.
Publisher's description: The impact of Andy Warhol on contemporary culture is incalculable. Painter, sculptor, printmaker, filmmaker, publisher, TV personality, socialite, diarist, graphic artist, collector, curator, illustrator, rock impresario, photographer, model, and author, he was a pioneer in virtually every medium in which he worked. From blotted-line advertising illustrations for I. Miller shoes in 1950s, to photography-based paintings of car wrecks or movie stars in the 1960s, to cult films that explored homoerotic and other sexually explicit subjects, to his reinvention of the celebrity magazine in the 1970s with Interview, Warhol's work was both ahead of its time and era-defining. With dedicated Twitter feeds today that adapt his short epithets or "Warholisms" into 140-character snippets ("People are so fantastic. You can't take a bad picture"), Warhol's cultural relevance seems only to grow in the twenty-first century. Edited and introduced by art critic Gilda Williams, ON&BY Andy Warhol brings together writers -- art critics, artists, cultural theorists, and Factory associates -- who have examined the influence and legacy of Warhol's life and work.
