“Dying is the most embarrassing thing that can ever happen to you.” Andy Warhol
Okay so theres a totally sick Andy Warhol exhibit at the Met right now. If you can get past the fact that like Terry Richardson, Warhol was a white spindly rapey creep– it’s actually pretty enjoyable. The whole factory thing sounds really industrial, abject and speedy, and he was a total revolutionary in the commodification of art–but any person that wears turtlenecks as ubiquitously as he, is just not to be trusted. I’m also not 100% sure he’s not 100% reposnsible for Edie’s death. unclear.
Last year I went to an event at the Moma that recreated his screen tests. I filmed one. It’s so bad. My eyes, total wonk. they slow down the film. But you can watch it here. xx
