AM I IN THE NEWS?

But being famous isn't all that important. If I weren't famous, I wouldn't have been shot for being Andy Warhol. Maybe I would have been shot for being in the Army. Or maybe I would be a fat schoolteacher. How do you ever know? A good reason to be famous, though, is so you can read all the big magazines and know everybody in all the stories. Page after page it's just all people you've met. I love that kind of reading experience and that's the best reason to be famous. I'm confused about who the news belongs to. I always have it in my head that if your name's in the news, then the news should be paying you. Because it's your news and they're taking it and selling it as their product. But then they always say that they're helping you, and that's true too, but still, if people didn't give the news their news, and if everybody kept their news to themselves, the news wouldn't have any news. So I guess you should pay each other.

POST WARHOL PREDICTION: JEWISH MAG: IS THE IDEA OF GREECE GOING BANKRUPT GOOD FOR THE JEWS?

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

It's a shame Saatchi is not more forthcoming on these controversies, because they do not threaten his achievement. Behind these personal dramas Saatchi changed contemporary cultural history, three times. Between 1985 and 1992 he bought and exhibited Europe and America's leading contemporary artists, from Bruce Nauman and Cindy Sherman to Philip Guston and Sigmar Polke. All these artists already had huge reputations abroad. Charles was certainly not making any of their names. He was an importer, but that is no criticism: no other collector was doing it in Britain. London was nowhere near being a centre for contemporary art like Paris, New York or Berlin; Charles was one of the people who began to change all that.

AMERICA GOT TALENT!

A nation governed by reason should include in its constitution a provision against the supervision of beauty contests by women. Women dominate the executive direction and management of the Miss America contest, and they have of course, ruined it. When it began it was fairly simple: good-looking girls in bathing suit paraded before judges until one of them was declared winner. Today, partially in order to drag the proceedings out sufficiently long to justify a $60 000 TV fee and to turn the house over three times, the girls are judged in three categories; in bathing suits, in evening gowns, and for something called talent. The bondaries of this latter category can be stretched to accomodate the ability to break four balloons the width of the stage away with seven arrows. Contestants have been known to sing, dance, «recite» trampoline-tumble and even crochet.

ARTISTS EXPLAINED...

«Most artists know what they were born to do (and are prepared to do it) at a far earlier age than, say, the average future lawyer realizes his intentions. And most artists, particularly the precocious breed, have had difficult, isolated chilhoods-no doubt partially because of the creative sensibility that sets them apart. In youth, what happens to the potential artist is rather like what happens to the pearl-bearing oyster. An alien sand grain invades the oyster's shell and, once imbedded there, irrates the tenant to the point of obsession, painfully pesters the oyster until it produces a jewel. Talent, and genius as well, is like a grain of pearl sand shifting about in the creative mind: a valued tormentor»

«IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE»

Even positive stereotypes are still stereotypes, and one of the oldest ones in creation--often patronizingly used by white folk--is that black dick is the best shit on earth. It's supposedly bigger, hotter, livelier, and more do-able than any other appendage on the planet, even more welcome than a stick shift on a free Oprah giveaway car.But is it true? Is a black penis by necessity more alluring than a pasty white wee-wee? And if it isn't, doesn't the forced expectation result in shrieks of disappointment every time an African American man undresses? Someone please open up your trap and tell me the real deal on this culinary subject. I've never sampled such a thing--I mean let's pretend I've never sampled such a thing--and I'm anxious to hear your views on whether dark chocolate is always tastier than the white stuff.

ANDY WARHOL AND THE JEWS

«Why are they all so smart, Bob? Andy asked. Could it be something in their diet? Don't you wish you were jewish sometimes? Andy thought about jews a lot. He was fascinated by them, afraid of them, dying to be accepted by them-but he never mentionned that his mother's grandmother was jewish. Often, he seemed to think that almost everyone he met was jewish and hiding it. He regularly said things like: «Can you be jewish and named Cathy? «She had that good, plain, pretty look, so she must be jewish» «She was putting down kids and dogs trying to make me think she's not jewish». Part of it came out of his feeling of rejection by the jewish intellectuals of the art world. When Helen Frankenthaler suggested Kenneth Noland for the serie one night at Elaine's Andy's comment to me was: I never knew Kenneth Noland was jewish. So that's why he gets such good reviews»

«Julian Schnabel is not a genius. He's probably not even a great painter. I'm sure that he's interesting today in a limited capacity and he's very interesting for collectors and dealers, but in the long run, his contribution is slight...His own conviction of his «importance» makes him even more difficult to digest. His obnoxious insistence on his importance disgusts me to the point of nausea. If he again attemps to make one of his self-referential speeches at Andy's memorial on Wednesday, I promise I will do my best to end his speech as quickly as possible. Andy hated his speeches and would never have wanted him to speak at his memorial.

RICHARD BERNSTEIN INTERVIEW MAGAZINE ET GRACE JONES



L'artiste Richard Bernstein est surtout connu pour avoir fait pendant plusieurs années la couverture du magazine Interview à ses belles heures. Les couvertures de ce magazine fin années 1970 jusqu'au milieu des années 1980 sont légendaires, accentuées de plus par le très large format d'alors. Les numéros de cette époque contenaient aussi plusieurs entrevues effectuées par Warhol lui-même. Mais Bernstein a aussi fait les pochettes de disque des premiers albums de Grace Jones, lesquelles témoignent aussi bien de l'époque disco que de l'art par ordinateur alors naissant comme phénomène.

«POP ART IS FOR EVERYONE»

Blake doesn't need to be this nice. He is, after all, a pioneer of Pop Art. It was he who designed the iconic cover of The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band in 1967. He is one of the country's best-known artists, becoming a Royal Academician in 1981, as well as a knight of the realm, in 2002, and has always been popular with the public. What concerns him, he says, is making art as "democratic and accessible as pop music"; seeking an audience beyond the "culturati". With the characters he reproduces, often in collage – wrestlers, say, Robin Hood or Elvis – he is clearly reaching out to the mainstream. His HQ is a veritable visual treat. It's not so much a workplace, as a museum of antiquities. You name it; he's kept it, so within the complex of rooms in his converted builder's yard you'll find an amazing collection of amassed trinkets. From the moment you glimpse the waxwork of the boxer Sonny Liston at the entrance you realise you've entered a world of vaudevillian heroes and villains.

FROM MATISSE TO LOUIS B. MAYER

In 1966, at the Leo Castelli gallery in New York, Andy bid adieu to art again with a show of Siver Pillows filled with helium, which were meant to «fly away». And when he moved from the original silver-foiled Factory on East 47th street to 33 Union Square West, no place was set aside to paint, and no Warhol paintings hung on Warhol's walls. The man who had wanted to be Matisse now wanted to be Louis B. Mayer.

While listening to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s new album Watch The Throne, we couldn’t help but notice that Jay-Z made a number of references to famous artists including Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. However, this should come as no surprise. After all, Jay has made fine art into a hobby of his in recent years. In fact, not only has Jigga name-dropped famous modern and contemporary artists on his songs, but he’s also had them design his album art, featured their work in his music videos, and talked about his ever growing art collection in interviews. That’s why we put together Timeline: Jay-Z’s Obsession With Art detailing Hov’s growing tastes in high-brow culture.

ANDY WARHOL & PLAYBOY MAGAZINE

Andy Warhol, the king of Pop Art and perhaps the greatest artist of the 20th century, was a beloved Playboy contributor. He began his long partnership with Playboy when Art Paul hired him to create a piece for the October 1961 issue of Show Business Illustrated, Hefner’s short-lived, glossy entertainment mag. This work, The Night the Roxy Opened, is classic pre-Pop Warhol, displaying the blotted ink lines of his early-advertising art. Paul was so pleased with Warhol’s creation that he went on to commission the artist multiple times over the course of nearly 25 years. Perhaps among the more iconic of these later contributions are Double Torso and Rabbit Head Logo. Double Torso appeared in a landmark January 1967 pictorial titled “The Playmate as Fine Art” in which Art Paul asked eleven contemporary artists—Salvador Dali and Tom Wesselmann among them—to use the Playmate as their muse. The painting was one of only three “ultra violet” works Warhol made in the 1960s—viewers could only see the painting by viewing it under black light. Rabbit Head Logo appeared on the cover of the magazine in January 1986 and has become one of the most widely known and valuable pieces in the Playboy Collection. To my knowledge, it is one of only four Rabbit Head works Warhol created in his lifetime. Playboy still owns Rabbit Head Logo, but has sold both Double Torso and The Night the Roxy Opened.

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

The leftist press has been out to lunch on this for 25 years -- it's outrageous that this matter hasn't been vigorously pursued. Because these academics mouth leftist sentiments -- even though their lifestyles are ones of ostentatious materialism -- the alternative press has been afraid to appear to take the side of the conservatives who have justifiably been berating the politicization of the campus since the '80s. Come on, let's look at reality. What important, essential works have come out of American humanities departments in the last 30 or 40 years? The important book just isn't there. Where is the great American scholar that poststructuralism has produced? When Harold Bloom goes, he's the last of the line. These people aren't great scholars -- they have no deep erudition. They just do gimmicky manipulations of other people's research. The people at the top with the power positions and the huge salaries are flashes in the pan -- their work isn't going to last.
