Andy Warhol: The Last Decade will be at the Brooklyn Museum from June 18th- Sept. 12th.
The Brooklyn Museum is the first U.S. museum to exhibit the late work of everyone’s favorite pop artist Warhol (or the only one most people know). It encompasses nearly 50 of his works before he left us for that big museum in the sky. He was inspired to return to the hand-painted image because of collaborations with Jean-Michael Basquiat, Francesco Clemente and Keith Haring which are featured in the exhibit.
I’m so in there!
Some quotes from Andy just ’cause:
“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.”
“Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”
“I had a lot of dates but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows.”
“I like boring things.”
“I never think that people die. They just go to department stores.”
“Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?”
I always felt like Andy was a sad man deep down… or maybe not so deep down.
Well that line was enough melancholy for one post! For info visit Brooklyn Museum Warhol Exhibit
