Andy Warhol by Wayne Koestenbaum( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sixties were the "sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll" era, and Andy Warhol was its cultural icon. Painter, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, Warhol was both celebrity and celebrant, the man who put the "Pop" in art. His studio, the Factory, where his free-spirited cast of "superstars mingled with the rich and famous, was ground zero for the explosions that rocked American cultural life. And yet for all his fame, Warhol was an enigma: a participant in the excesses of his time who remained a faithful churchgoer, a nearly inarticulate man who was also a great aphorist ("In the future, everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes"), an artist whose body of work sizzles with sexuality but whose own body was a source of shame and self-hatred." "In his account of Warhol's life and work, scholar and culture critic Wayne Koestenbaum gets past the contradictions and reveals the man beneath the blond wig and dark glasses. Nimbly weaving brilliant and witty analysis into an absorbing narrative, Koestenbaum approaches Warhol as a serious artist, one whose importance goes beyond the sixties. Focusing on Warhol's provocative, powerful films (many of which have been out of circulation since their initial release), Koestenbaum shows that Warhol's oeuvre, in its variety of forms (films, silkscreens, books, "happenings"), maintains a striking consistency of theme: Warhol discovered in classic American images (Brillo boxes, Campbell soup cans, Marilyn's face) a secret history, an erotics of time and space."--Jacket

I'll be your mirror : the selected Andy Warhol interviews : 1962-1987 by Andy Warhol( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Q & A interview was one of Andy Warhol's favorite communication vehicles - he even named his own magazine after the form. Yet there has never been a collection of interviews that Warhol himself gave. I'll Be Your Mirror contains thirty-seven conversations revealing the complex mind of one of the most important artists of our time. Spanning 1962-1987, each piece presents a different facet of Warhol's ever-evolving personality." "Poet, editor, and critic Kenneth Goldsmith provides context and provenance for each selection in a piece of cultural history. The collection covers Warhol's work during the '60s with seminal interviews about his famous Campbell's Soup can paintings; his portraits of the grief-stricken Jackie Kennedy; and his powerful Death and Disaster series. As Warhol shifts from painting to filmmaking in the '70s, the interviews explore his emergence as socialite, scene-maker, and trend-setter; the influential Interview magazine; the Studio 54 scene; and in the 80s, his support of young artists like Keith Haring, the growing relationship between technology and art; and finally, his return to religious imagery and spirituality in an interview conducted just months before his death."--Jacket

"The geographical dead center of North America and the beloved birthplace of Guy Maddin, Winnipeg is the frosty and mysterious star of Maddin's "docu-fantasia." A work of memory and imagination, Maddin's film burrows into what the filmmaker calls "the heart of the heart" of the continent, conjuring a city as delightful as it is fearsome, populated by sleepwalkers and hockey aficionados. Take part in Winnipeg's annual epic scavenger hunt! Pay your respects to the racehorses forever frozen in the river! Help judge the yearly homoerotic Golden Boy pageant! What is real and what is fantasy is left up to the viewer to sort out in Maddin's hypnotic, expertly conceived paean to that wonderful and terrifying place known as My Hometown."--Container
