Artists on Andy Warhol


Members $12.76

Artists on Andy Warhol is the third installment in a series culled from Dia Art Foundation’s Artists on Artists lectures, focused on the work of artist Andy Warhol. This small-format book delves into the artist’s oft-quoted phrase: “If you want to 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.” Artists on Andy Warhol breaks down this iconic phrase to investigate Warhol’s relationship with art, culture, language, and race with essays that examine the significance of halftones and shadows and look to sources such as Ralph Ellison and Jacques Lacan. Together Robert Buck, Glenn Ligon, Jorge Pardo, Kara Walker, and James Welling search beyond the surface of Warhol’s work, persona, and legacy to better understand the invisible artist.
