You wouldn't notice it if it pissed on your leg. I don't know you're the artist but I know my life to well. I need something new and you just said two things that are each other's the exact opposite my stops next meal. You've been absolutely useless. What did you eat for lunch today today yesterday yesterday when you were a kid? What did you eat today? Ham on Rye Sandwich with pickled yesterday skipped lunch at half an apple during work when I was a kid every day. My mom made us mom made you wack Campbell's tomato soup see something like that. No that Campbell's tomato soup isn't this your Jiwan. What how much do you want for the idea? Bad idea meal. I have to go buy new paints new canvas in every Campbell's bulls tomato soup between here and Fifth Street. So give me a price. How much do you offer the idea? The next day Warhol paid mural that Tau fifty dollars and soon thereafter developed thirty. Two paintings of the Campbell's soup can he called the collection. Campbell's soup cans Andy. Andy employed a technique. He had learned only the year before called silk screening. This allowed him to reproduce photographs on blown upscale with his choice of colors he worked out. A sketch of a single soup can and reproduced the exact image thirty two times Wendy inches high and sixteen inches wide with no artistry or illustration address them up each had. Do exactly like something you could find in your cupboard to New York warhol had made the most mundane insignificant artwork possible civil but for Irving blum the curator at the Ferris Gallery in Los Angeles. The Eh done something genius bloom offered to display the exhibit and even added a final touch redesigning his gallery in the style of a supermarket aisle the world of Pop art now had its emblem a can of soup. Let's easy to see why art critics were confused and made a portrait of a commercial item. Developed it using commercial techniques replicated a commercial setting as the backdrop and called it all all art not only that he was charging a whopping one hundred dollars a canned and he would continue doing so nineteen sixty three. So warhol continuing doing on the theme depicting dollar bills coke bottles and more soup cans in the same forthright manner all of which were displayed at the coveted stable gallery in New New York. Andy's first major gallery in the city. He continued experimenting with Silk Screening and repetitive printing. His darker works explored American violence depictions of automobile accidents mushroom clouds and electric chairs. You'd be surprised to hang an electric chair in the living room. Especially if the background matches the drapes oops. But his most iconic work came from Andy's favorite topic celebrities he began producing portraits riffing on color and framing with each new print his subjects included Elvis Presley Marlon Brando Muhammad Ali and perhaps most famously Marilyn Monroe and by the time of Monroe's death in nineteen sixty two warhol had already masked quite a collection of her images. Maryland was the perfect celebrity she was an icon rather than a single talent. A true symbol symbol of distilled fame and took a single image of her and replicated hundreds of times sometimes with different color palettes sometimes the same but warhol's Dell's depictions warrant flattering. His prints often had smudges or miss framing at times rendering the starlets face. Nearly illegible use of celebrity was only a starting adding point for Andy. It was the endless repetition that would impact audiences for Warhol Marilyn. Monroe wasn't the subject the endless pictures of her we see the constant pinups and advertisements the commercialization of a person that was the meaning of celebrity. And that's how Andy Warhol took. The world's most famous face and reduced it to the level of a soup can his work van meteoric admiration and controversy in the art world. Were Hall subjects had never been seen in such such a basic forthright way and most importantly his work was instant. Andy said of his own. Work if you WANNA know all about Andy Warhol just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me and there I am. There's nothing behind it. In other words it didn't take a graduate degree to understand Elvis Presley. It was simple yet. Revolutionary Canary by showing a soup can calling it art. Andy asked a broader question for the first time in history. Can anything be art. Everyone should have fifteen eighteen minutes of fame and had stumbled onto an America in which every object could be. Art and every loner could be famous. It was both a dream and a joke. Replicated replicated hundreds of times over by the silk screening technique and audiences responded by the end of nineteen sixty. Three Warhol was an international name. This was only the beginning. The next phase of Warhol's life the so called silver period would center around his most bizarre and controversial creation of all time the factory factory billy. It's wonderful you like the walls the hallways also also shiny. I'll abstract I want my just like it all right but I have to let you know. I'm not cheap anymore. Andy you want me to design your space. It's GonNa cost you billy I love you. I've got enough money to buy three of you. You start tomorrow other New York.

He figured his hometown would be the best place to look in partly because of macos Patriarchal Society where entree could marry a girl with only the approval of her family. This is how he chose Julia Zaba a woman opposite of him. In appearance and personality Andrei was large and Brusque Julia Petite in quiet. Neither headstrong feelings for the other. But Julius family liked Andres work ethic the mismatched pair married and a few years later Andrei decided they would return to America to Pittsburgh the Pennsylvania where he'd found work in the coal mines. Julia didn't like her new home. She refused to learn English and therefore rarely left the house. Luckily the House Got Busier. Julia gave birth to two sons before. Andy Powell in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and John in nineteen twenty five meaning that and by the time of Andy's birth in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight. The family had established a sense of routine andres meager salary and long hours relegated him to the distant breadwinner winner of the family. While Julia kept the House and cared for the boys and his older brothers also had their share of responsibilities which included providing extra income. Come to the family. Pablo took on his first job when he was eleven. But both boys played a large part in raising andy this included enrolling him in school and disciplining him when he acted out all right. You're going to walk inside. Go Up to the lady with the white hair and say oh you're going to say my name is Andy Were Hola. I'm six years old. I'm not Fixed Shush.

Dance it it was an unlucky draw for eight weeks. Andy couldn't leave his bed. He grew skinny and frail. His skin turned blotchy and his nose. Protruded Bulb Asli there were emotional tolls as well. Andy developed a deep fear of sickness doctors and hospitals. His hypochondria would last his entire life but the time off had its benefits. Andy took up a new hobby to pass the time. Celebrity worship and the obsessed over gossip and star tracking magazines following following Hollywood's biggest stars. His favorite would be a little girl about his age and appearance who had already managed to become a household name. Shirley Temple Komo cracker in my them rabbit but I have following. I'm one by one. The idea that someone his age could achieve stardom greatly appealed to Andy soon he was cutting out pictures of Shirley and his other favorite stars then piecing them back together in collages. Of course this would later echo in his famous celebrity portraits but for the time being he was just a lonely starstruck fan day. He's coming does he think we have a fancy automobile to take us. What going to me late in nineteen thirty nine nine Andrei and some co workers accidentally drank contaminated water at their worksite? While the others recovered Andrei grew more ill he soon had to retire are unable to work his presence. In the home dampened the report Andean.

You're making a project and it doesn't matter that you're entering the House of God with glue on your hands or late. Let's just start walking. While Andy Washes his hands. He'll have to run to catch up understood. Yes Sir but Andrei Drake cared for the family in different ways. Seeing the most potential in his youngest son Andrei saved money for Andy's education. He would die when Andy was only thirteen. High School came and went. Andy Hope to study art education at the University of Pittsburgh but his plans changed to be more practical practical in nineteen forty five Andy enrolled in the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh studying commercial art from the start and he didn't get along well with his professors and once again he'd have to answer to Paul this letter says you're flunking three classes. I'm only flunking three classes. It says you'll be expelled at the end of the term Pavel. I'm sorry but I'm not going to let someone who still bitter. They aren't Picasso. Tell me my drawing is eighty seven percent creative to understand his argument. We need a quick catch up on art history in one thousand nine hundred fifty s saw. The rain of an art style called abstract expressionism. Painters like Jackson pollock abandoned recognizable subjects and instead tried to capture raw emotion through color texture and juxtaposition art was defined signed by beautiful otherworldly expressions that spoke directly of the artists brilliance was created a polarizing atmosphere and eight year Grad student might understand the the significance of a Rothko print but the general populace just saw squares with salsa created a divide among artists. The quote real artists those who sold sold among the high end galleries and the quote commercial artists. Who worked advertisements in comics?

Andy dropped the a from his last name. Becoming Andy Warhol and took up residence in New York City. New York would be the center of Andy's greatest accomplishments so we want to take a quick snapshot of who he was upon arrival. First of. Aw Andy was fiscally independent conscious of money since childhood warhol quickly secured commissions for. I Miller Shoes Glamour magazine and numerous window displays as he was good at his job. We're halls commercial. Work would win awards from the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the art directors club but he already possessed his trademark shakiness. Shakiness has more artistic work such as don't pick on me a picture of a man picking. His nose seem designed to offend and perplexed the viewer though he didn't get that much recognition for such art. He seemed delighted in pushing the comfort of his audience. There were other changes in his life as well.

I'm the type who'd be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn't going to. I'm the type who'd like to sit at home and watch every party that I'm invited to on a monitor. During my bedroom and warhol celebrity worship also continued. He was now enamored with the author. Truman capote like Shirley Temple capote represented an an idealized version of Warhol Gay Gregarious and though he had yet to write breakfast at tiffany's or in cold blood clearly talented andy reached out to Capote Multiple Apple Times through letters and phone calls. It didn't go well. Hello Hello.

I went i start i auditioned and i love the community and i love the the camry of theater. I liked the idea you have your very intense goal very intense relationships to try and get this thing on put put it in front of people and i love the adrenaline of it. I love the learning partner bandit because you study the plane. Then you have to study all the early still they'll do by your face and by looking still there but i i remember seeing you an early movie. Did sometimes you say. How do you cast instance something. How does it happen where you played andy warhol. Oh yeah so. That's what i'm looking at. You've just described how you were growing up what you've studied bodied how you did it in hollywood they say why don't you play andy warhol. Well i mean initially. I went into into met to meet mary harron for that. I mean i i i saw it as an opportunity and it was i. I'm mary and said look. I'll toss me to come back in three days time. I give me give me a couple of weeks. You'll have an the idea of how close i can get the part and so i went off and i did a little research and i came back in and i well came in and character from right from the off walking into the office. I also thought to myself. Andy would never put himself in this position he way he was under this much pressure. He tried flip on somebody else so i bought a video camera and i made a video tape of then would issuing me so that they would feel self conscious <hes> but but you know talking talking about dramas about college when that movie came out here in new york my first acting teacher and director had moved to the new york and <hes> taken a different job and i said come to the premier with me. You know it'd be great you and my first acting teacher. It'll be really good so we we we do the red carpet and we're working our way up the red carpet and somebody else says he was your first director first teacher. You must be so proud. Here area's name up in lights and the premier new york city because yes. I'm very proud so you must have all those years ago. You must have seen something special in him. He said no i didn't is there anything special in doing english play or he does someone to keep an eye on the accents for me truly spiring. Ah love so good.

E put uses as grant in lincoln <hes> you are. You've just do this to noble right up to that. Do you take those people home with you i in there. I remember i mean whilst you're doing it they they they stay within once you've finished. Actually the hardest thing is to prepare a role that you don't get to do because that guy not person rumbles around inside you because he never got to do it. Yeah i remember symbol that when i was doing warhol on doing the research now everything i would have very gossipy conversations with my mother on the fine which i didn't have often i sort of regretted not i don't know what it was with her but he was a huge gossip and he'd sit and chat to people on the phone and get them to tally everything about what they did that day and <hes> <hes> anti brought out your mom. This is a good thing yeah well <hes> i- <music>. I'm fascinated by s gone and would love to go back to that character into that story. I was deeply impressed by <hes> how misunderstood <hes> he he is also that his story is and and and his reputation is so at odds with with with what he did.

This is gonna take like me all night so i said okay i. I'll help us long as i can but eventually i just go to sleep.

We were like oh did someone hit her with a shovel because she doesn't like that show i don't i doubt it yeah probably not probably we just generally free shovel talked yeah and then i got real philosophical. She was really afraid of garbage trucks and then i went this might be the first time. Did you see the garbage truck. It'd be terrifying if you've never seen a tire life like psychologically. The rescue thing was a little while a little crazy yeah the garbage thing i had the same thing where i was getting a little frustrated because he was losing his mind at it thought about it because it's like individual trash cans so a robotic arm grabs throws you on your head and he's it's just like i the candidate x.

"warhol" Discussed on Making It With Jimmy Diresta, Bob Clagett and David Picciuto
"I mean, I have the initial idea which I don't know how much is. It's not really an originally just thought it would be an appropriate thing to have at workbench con I make that for him. And so we just talked about it for a few minutes came up with a couple of ideas, and they go so I didn't have to worry too much about the final graphic other than just a little lock direction. But it was you know, stuff like that just gives you more time in the day. And it comes out of the studio people notes printed on one of my answering machines, and and people are gonna look and go bread came up with this graphic, you know, it's can Herod that assisted collab- and an an and I have one time to do things. Yeah. So you were talking about Andy Warhol earlier and a couple of friends of mine worked for an artist named Jeff Koons you ever heard of Jeff Koons? Sure, my friend used to work for him boy did some stuff. So he's extremely popular. Artist in New York City, and he has basically a warehouse of people working around the clock twenty four seven there are shifts like night shifts of people that are just constantly coming in and turning all the time creating our work for him. And he's a gigantic artists yet, he people love and hate him. Yeah. I know that this is facing. I people like his always smiling and happy and artists are supposed to be down. Yeah. Depressing. Okay. Yeah. He's he's happy because he's probably very wealthy. Really really big expensive. Anyway, I've had two friends that have worked for him on and off in different times. But they have this like warehouse of people who do sculpture and paint in like, you know, detailed paint men big broad paint. And the people that build canvases and build structures Musa huge operation in high kinda have the same. Reaction to that that you had originally about Andy Warhol it except that. I don't know this this one feels like in his situation, and I don't know about the guy or anything, but it feels like that the work. The actual work is really being done by a bunch of other people. Now that doesn't read a wrong. I don't really care. But I think the thing is interesting is he created a brand around himself in around his choices around his aesthetic in the things that he likes and he comes up with and then his brand his company his studio produces those things. So that Jimmy that's basically the same thing that you're saying is like all of these things that you're doing on paper. Whether they're you're saying you're gonna from somewhere else or whether the graphic is done by you, regret or me or somebody else. It's it's still the idea is coming from you as a brand. And then the execution is coming from you as a studio in. So like, I kinda think the same thing about to make stuff, but the. Difference. There is the in. This is one of those things that have tried to think about that. I haven't really made time to fully think about I want the brand instead of being Bob I want I like to make stuff to be the brand. So I've always tried to push that thing out front a little bit. So that once other people are creating under the brand and are a part of the production. Whether I'm involved or not it doesn't seem disingenuous. Just the way that I've looked at it like, I don't want it to be a Bob thing. I wanted to be thing that Bob is a part of an insulin. So can be a part of an so Kameda part of you know, that gives it I think legs outlive me, and it gives it room for growth without it being the Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons situation. You know, not that those things are bad. That's just the way that I've tried to set my situation up is that it can outgrew me, basically. Well, an example that here in New York City is it Indian Larry is a motorcycle fabricator who died in an accident in two thousand four and but he died the peak of his popularity..

I I have a fan of anywhere and he's only been dead for thirty thirty thirty. Yeah. I I don't know. I did not like that out of just. Let's not like anywhere hall Burger King. It's probably something leftover from class. I had to take in college where I had a film. Studies teacher who I guess the guy finally became a professor and decided that he would just show us two things for for four months, and it was home movies from the velvet underground band sessions university university, Nebraska, and and so it was that. And he would always namedrop how Andy Warhol was always there. Andy Warhol the factory whatever the hell, they call. It. Don't care. Andy Warhol was here. I swear ten times a class. The man dropped the name Andy Warhol does because anti was van. Sure. And so was Gianluca Dorde, which was the other thing we had to watch all of his French filmmaker. Oh, really, bad French movies infringe most subtitles. So maybe I'm just leftover hating on. Warhol because of that film studies class, but so in that commercial came up I had a flashback of the class. But anyway, we have the Microsoft we all win commercial, which I love really good.

"I'm not done. So that's a huge difference mean his his in a way where it was quite a lot is quite traditional was painting was and. And I think. No. We don't have that much in common really in in. I mean, I wouldn't want to compare myself anyway. But just think yes, I mean, in a way he's responsible for a lot of problems in the I think this concentration money miss love of money and the way people work and talk about us, and he he is one of the first people to to talk nice times about and and the ways prices have just been inflated as well. I mean, that's nothing. That's his problem. And the idea of an office wants to be famous and all that kind of stuff, but that's unleashed many demons. In the art world. And he's second right artists who think they can be like him. Yes. He he he did open a kind of worms, and then as left us to work out to do that kind of worms doggy. Yeah. I I agree with that. And I think one of the things about wool hose, he's understanding of those mechanisms and the the sort of infrastructures of those sort of power structures if you like will was much more sophisticated than he's often giving credit. Absolutely. I mean, he saw a whole of America from top to bottom. You know, he loved hanging out with rich people. But he so despised them as well. And if you when you see it doesn't have much good to say about them when you read the Dr is he really thought the he was I think he was very aware of social issues and famously I still don't if it's true. He did do the soup kitchen thing on Friday evenings, Jordan, just done if that's true or not. But we'll don't salvo the curator of the Whitney's suggests that is true. That's the case, and he was going to the top and the bottom of America. So he's very aware thoughts, and he came from a very poor background. That's why I made an exhibition about William Morrison Warhol few years ago, and they both of them Morris to Morris had clients who with some of the richest people in the world, but also he would travel around Britain giving lectures and talks and an meeting people who are some of the poorest people in the country and they both with super aware of that kind of quite angry buyers. Well Morris sent Morris insane. And I think it probably did that with wool hose where he probably was quite angry by these wealthy people. Just. Not worthy of it of his riches. It seemed to me that that show was was really trying to complicate Warhol as a as both an artist and a public figure in a way that you. You've you've expressed just now so contradictory about him in some ways. But I think we'll how in a way as he's especially in social media driven world has become a kind of caricature of what? Whoa, ho, actually woes deepen the mystery of supporting death is the thing that was a lot more. Here's a very political artist. You could argue I mean, everyone just thinks oh we just like money, and what is interesting surface and his new superficial. But actually, he was he was really deeply his very profound artists documenting the American empire. You know, the the the postwar empire was America. And he was he was there ought est. And if you think about what what was America like in the sixties and seventies, Andy Warhol's work. He don't read a book you look at those images almost. So I think you know, he was absolutely a chronicler. And he was a prophet as well like Morris? They're both prophets for the future. Both looked into the future. And saw what it was going to be like. We'll hope basically predicted the internet in assign some respect in terms of his interests in the way, he was veracious collector and. Wanting to be everywhere overtime me everyone be documented meeting everyone. He's gonna collecting habits is his wanting to document his life to record everything. I still maintain that if he was alive during the internet. He would have been one of the major players within internet because all his obsessions of the obsessions of the incident. Meeting people.

He had his office, which was full of boxes and books, and magazines which wasn't even a chair and his full, you know, he had no he didn't office unusable. Basically, it was it was office of a relaxed office environment. I would say that makes sense some stuffed animals around pretty Polin was on the desk. But you know, you with you in that place. It was very exciting. Did that Mark that moment when he made that shift you'll studying history, and you make that shift into thinking there's a possibility of being an artist possibility is a good word because it's just showed what was possible. What was actually possible in the world as an artist you, basically, did whatever you wanted and heated every wanted as they seemed like it complete freedom. It wasn't actually the case when you eat the diaries and find out what was going on at that time. He's quite frustrated butts just like he could do he wanted. And. Yes, dismayed the world of baroque Altarpieces much love them, just not particularly become really compete with that with with contemporary life. And so I took about to finish my degree. Nobody knew what to do with the experience of being there. Really? I didn't even know what. It took some time to process in a way. But I just knew I'd been ruined by in terms of history. My life in our history had just been destroyed by guide same and one of the striking connections. I think between your work and Andy Warhol's life from work is is this connection with with music and particularly comportment Warhol's famous Cavs for the velvet underground, yes. And Rolling Stone, sticky, fingers, etc. Yes. Yes. But also just that sort of spiritual connection between art and music, and it seems to me that's right at the heart of what you do. Yes. Yes. It is. That existed before I really. The music my connection to music and pop music was. About four or five. So that was what he there. But then seeing an artist it was seemed to be part of that was well, it was interested in it was quite influential. So I was always happy to know that. And, but yes, for music thing for me was always huge huge still is I mean, maybe less so now lost touch popular music. But I still have opinions. But yes that was that not having any boundaries. I think it was the interesting thing with him film magazine music arts performance, in a way in his life was a performance for me as he's a great influence in that respect and the spies. Also, the fact that he sort of corralled people together into interesting situations. And you think about the film's may very many of them Warhol setting up a situation. And then seeing what happens, and you see that to certain degree in your work as well. Yes little bit. I mean, very different situations. But he's yes, he was of wire he's clearly was of wire of people. He wasn't really take palm things and I had a little bit about me as well. Very good at taking pond things. I like getting the paper to take part in. It's a contradiction in a way. That's yes. I deaf is definitely a connection in that respect. All over was an artist too. Had a very object based practices. Well, as the sort of more Merel in film based works and stuff like that. You will. I don't think of you as somebody who produces objects..

"Well, I could never say that I know him in that sense. But I think that you know, you see as an individual. I think that many there was a sort of hidden part to how he lived his life. Clearly, we're just talking about is Catholicism, you know, other things that were not commonly known. So there. There was a a distance, you know, whether it was being an insider and outsider because I think he was that to a certain extent, you know, it's like a way you're on the street in off the street. But I also think that, you know, there was an air of mystery that he purposely created around himself. You know, he begins using his own self portrait's year round sixty four and makes himself subject. But of course, the self portrait is not a new idea and the history of art. But eventually also he does become a brand in the eighties. He appears TV commercials appears in print commercials for various projects products, mostly outside of the US does one for Japanese commercial for Japanese television. So it's the level of product endorsement in the days the old days where you know, Joan Crawford sold Pepsi-Cola. So that's not a new thing. We still have you know, Matthew, mcconaughey, I think's Ellen cars. And so it's. Not a kind of, you know, new idea. But, you know, the the issue of, you know, the late self portrait's that he makes which of course, with fright wig where you know, there's a mysterious figure there, and I think most really good artists. Often say little about themselves. So I think for all that Warhol said in the diaries and all the, you know, and he's out there more than any other artists. I can imagine to some extent, you know, Skar wild certainly with someone who put out a lot of information about himself. So he's a little bit in that, you know, in that vein, but could ever know everything? And I think that's the same thing with his works of art that when they comes down to it. They remain mysterious as any great work of art. I think does I've always believed that this test of great work of art. Is that no matter how do you? How many times you go back to it? You can't completely figure it out. And I think that's the case with Warhol. We'll apparently met Donald Trump in several times. And he writes about Trump and Trump's first wife vonda in his diaries. I also see that Trump is quoted Warhol in a couple of his books. How do you think your show connects with this Trumpian moment we're in? Well, absolutely. You know, Warhol did have exchanges with Donald Trump. Of course, they were both on the scene in New York and Trump had asked him to make a painting of one of his buildings. I think it was Trump Tower and Warhol did it and then Trump rejected it because he said that the color combo didn't hidden like the color combo. And I think we're Warhol quotes in his diaries that you know, he felt Donald Trump was really cheap. So. You know, I think it's a great question because I do think that because Warhol's work is so a dented with the United States, and because the subject matter is absolutely drawn from for the most part, the US that it's an interesting moment to look at what is being projected in that work, and that optimism of the sixties in the postwar era, and a very different kind of America and America on the on the, you know, as the savior of the world, you know, the Marshall plan. I mean, we're in a very different place then than we are now. So I think it's very interesting to look at that. And to compare these two times when we're in an extremely different different situation. Both domestically and globally. You know? I think the other thing is to you know, think about the way Warhol creates these fictions through his films of the sixties, and the, you know. No, the inevitable rise culturally. And this is not something. I would say was something Warhol can be you know, said he did that he that he created. But you know, we live in an age of celebrity culture of reality TV. And so it's quite interesting to think of that, you know, cinema verite that started to happen in a lot of Warhol's films. Where you see it as you see it. There's no script it's an acting out..

So Nancy kinda Yellowstone disavow how in vote was we'll in everyday production that. Well, I mean, of course, it's a place where he made his paintings. So he was silk screening there and a lot of the films are made at the factory shot actually within the factory. So you know, I think that he was a presence there. And and he was kind of director in terms of attracting people I think a lot of people came to him. And then letting people do their thing, you know. So in a sense, I thought he was a bit of the art director at that time, you know, he had raw material and all of these different characters who are my you know, who were attracted to him. And, but it's it's a film set in a lot of ways it's both painting studio and film set. And, you know, I'm, you know, clearly the site for a lot of acting out and a lot of drug taking, and you know, craziness, you know, I it's it's one of the points in the exhibition is there's a group.

So I've lichen that in some ways to kind of first factory because if you see the factory you could see it as a sell on factory was a great phrase for it. Because again, it's so contrary to the idea of the artist alone in their studio, it's this industrial production.

There's one tuna fish disaster of two women who both are tragically die as a result of poison tuna fish. So it's it's a very maybe the flip side of, you know, a certain kind of postwar optimism, and I believe they remained some of his most searing paintings. And of course, the electric chair, which is just, you know, a startling image to see. And of course, Warhol makes the one in the show is a lavender disaster painting. So in a sense, the absurdity, the irony and the horrific nature, and maybe even our disregard, or are, you know, the way in which you can look at an image. And is it what is it really about? When you see this loan electric chair from sing sing prison, and the recognition that this is a means of capital punishment, and then it's maybe youthful. Lavender it.

So there's a duality. And I think that we're all I've always felt he picked up on what I've seen is the twin contradictions of of the American psyche, which is the desire for innovation. But also for conformity later and sixty eight Warhol has been badly wounded in a shooting assassination temporarily the shooter is Valerie Salata and occasional actor in his films. What impact that has on his career? It's a very good question. Because I think that many people feel that after sixty eight you know, he, of course, it was he was horrifically injured. And nearly died was brought back to life on the operating table and carry those scars with him throughout but in the exhibition, we have a section devoted to a lot of the experiments that he was doing during that period. So rather than to see it, which some have, you know, seen it as the end of his great period of innovation of the sixties. I think it's a bit of a marker of the next kinds of experiments that said, I you know, I. I know that there were massive changes at the factory bulletproof door that was installed. It was no longer. Anyone could just show up, and you know, Warhol's enterprises probably came became more like a business very different than the sixties model. And so the production itself is sounds more organized. I wasn't there. So, you know, but everything that I'm aware of and people have spoken to who. Of course have worked with Warhol during that period. You know, there was the interview magazine is launched many many commissions, come Warhol's way. But then immediately, you know, couple of just a few years later in nineteen seventy-two. He makes his starts his mouth series. So it's really the beginning of another period of intense work, and and and pushing the envelope of painting..

"The volume of soup sales because it's down dramatically. Let's I guess bottom line is that the pallets are becoming more sophisticated soups are more intricate. Campbell's does have the higher end soups. But yeah, the typical soup and in the typical well-known Andy Warhol artwork Campbell Soup cans, the traditional condensed soup with little gold circle. And and other variety those sales have been plummeting. So they've they've got some issues to deal with but. I don't think that the interim CEO really wanted to deal with a George Soros conspiracy.

No today would have been Andy Warhol's. Ninetieth birthday. Yes, pop art, yes. One of the most iconic and influential artists of the twentieth century. But as we're about to learn a pioneer in what Warhol called business art. Critic, Blake gopnik is finishing the work on a comprehensive biography of Warhol, and he came by to help us understand what Warhol had in mind with business art. Yeah. I mean, he's best known of course to the general public for his Campbell soups and his Maryland paintings. But I think his most interesting work is actually the way he created something that he called business art. And usually people see him as a sold out artists who've got other people to make his art, and his only goal was to make money, will he declared selling out the kind of art this thing called business are that can seem farfetched you can think, well, all he wants to do is make some Lou which he did like to do. But it's weird is than that because every time he tried to make money, he came up with totally cockamamie business plans. Business art is not the guy with the chain stores in the mall selling oil paintings. The structure of the business was seen as a kind of a work of art. Yeah, Andy Warhol claimed the act of being a good businessman could make you different kind of artists, a new kind of artists. But you know, when he tried to make money, the things people cues them of doing to make money, make no sense. He got involved with the velvet underground, a screeching band that turned their amps up to eleven to magic. The velvet underground was a money making scheme made no sense. Come on a love, the velvet underground, their legacy endures, but okay, they weren't mass-market. They barely made a cent for poor Andy or how about the time he decided to make a perfume for sale anti cold it you're in. Why are you apostrophe r. e. I n.
