POST WARHOL PREDICTION: IN THE FUTURE JEFF KOONS WILL PAY HOMMAGE TO WARHOL BY CREATING «PORTRAITS OF TEN JEWS OF THE 21st CENTURY»

TOM WESSELMANN À MONTRÉAL

Après avoir vu la très belle exposition Tom Wesselmann à Montréal on ne peut que s'étonner qu'il ait fallu autant de temps pour donner à cet artiste une retrospective majeure nord-américaine aussi bien méritée. Comme on ne peut que constater à quel point, comme tous les véritables artistes, il était foncièrement un bourreau de travail. Il y a aujourd'hui les boîtes Brillo et les soupes Campbell De Warhol. Puis les combine paintings de Rauschenberg et les drapeaux et cibles de Jasper Johns. Wesselmann quant à lui, a légué à la grande histoire de l'art ses Still Lifes. Toutes aussi superbes les une que les autres. Comme si tout à coup les expérimentations et recherches formalistes d'un Rauschenberg, et les couleurs vives et juxtapositions surprenantes d'un Rosenquist se mélangeaient à merveille. Le tout dans une sorte de Pop Art rappelant souvent le célébre collage de Richard Hamilton par l'esprit et l'élan. Et manifestement à voir la liste des collectionneurs de ces Still Lifes, Joseph Mugrabi n'a pas eu du flair que pour ses quelques 800 Warhol....

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

«The limp watches are also a prefiguration of Christ, because they resemble the soft cheese that obsessed me, and Dali has discovered that the body of Jesus is the same as cheese. This is no only Dali: the first man who talked about this was Saint Augustine, who once compared the body of Christ to mountains of cheese»

-Salvador Dali
Playboy magazine
July 1964 p.42

ANDY'S ART

«Andy had always liked drawing; that was why he went to art school. It was his line that was special. He was very aware that what he had was a talent. Above all, he like making art hat was profitable. He wasn't removed from his art in the nihilistic way that is often ascribed to him.

«TOUT EST BEAU»

«J'ai fait de plus loin que moi un voyage abracadabrant
Il y a longtemps que je ne m'étais pas revu
me voici en moi comme un homme dans une maison
qui s'est faite en son absence
je te salue, silence
Je ne suis pas revenu pour revenir
Je suis arrivé à ce qui commence

DAVID LACHAPELLE ON WARHOL AND INTERVIEW MAGAZINE

«I think gay people have different eyes. I see beauty in everything, be it a man's body or a woman's body. Or even a McDonald's....When I showed Andy my photographs, he said they were beautiful. I learned he said that about everything.. But there was a trickle -down effect at Interview: Andy wanted everything in the magazine to be beautiful and that was conveyed by Marc Balet to me. That philosophy has really affected my work. I still want everything to look beautiful, even if it's wild»

JAMES DEAN

I watched Giant on TV from 1:00 to 5:30. It's so long. I even went to church in between and when I came back it was still on. James Dean's acting when he gets old is the worst thing. But they did a good thing -when he's drunk and talking into the microphones it's like a rock star, he's on top of the microphone and it's just noises coming out and it's so abstract.

BATMAN ET L'ART POP

L'art Pop dans les années 1960 se faisait éclatant, jusque dans la série télévisée Batman. Les célèbres Pow, Wham ou Boum des scénes de combats contre les vilains trouvèrent d'ailleurs un écho fort intéressant lorsque en 1966 Roy Lichtenstein fut invité à réaliser la couverture de Batman pour le TV Guide de l'époque.

THE AMERICAN DREAM

«He was an outsider, and as such, the perfect fan, a stargazer who sat in the darkness of gilded 1940's movie palaces spellbound by the American dream. And like the newly-minted Hollywood moguls who spun gold from celluloid illusions, Warhol did more than buy the dream; he became it.»

THE DIVINITY OF KIM KARDASHIAN EATING A PIZZA SLICE

«At this moment when you catch me with the tape recorder I like it very much: this is very good. But the most fantasically happy day in my life was when two photographers form Paris Match came to see me in London. They want one complete day of Dali, every detail. Even while I eat in a restaurant they take the pictures. I lift a little piece of camembert and «pop» with the camera. Every single moment is absolutely extraordinary...My life is like millions of people watching me on television, every moment, every second. This is the most divine thing».

THE LITTLE HISTORY OF STICKY FINGERS

«Andy gave Glenn a big thrill when he asked him to pose for the cover of the Rolling Stones' new album Sticky Fingers. It was a crotch shot of a guy in jeans, with a zipper that unzipped to reveal another crotch shot of a guy in Jockey shorts. Glenn wasn't the only one Andy photographed for this project. He also shot Jed's brother, Jay and his best friend Cory Tippin, who did the makeup for L'Amour. When the album came out, Glenn was certain it was he on the inside and Jay Johnson on the outside, but Andy would never say exactly whose crotch he had immortalized»

COVER ART

Intéressant de constater comment les albums de musique considérés comme étant les plus importants musicalement ont très souvent aussi eu des pochettes réalisées par des artistes importants du monde des arts visuels. Bien sur on pense à Peter Blake pour le plus célèbre album des Beatles, mais il y en a quantités d'autres. Richard Hamilton pour le White Album du même groupe, Warhol pour Sticky Fingers des Rolling Stones, etc...

«THERE SHOULD BE COURSE IN FIRST GRADE ON LOVE»

«I'm sure for him it's different since he's a walking sex object. I'm really confused. I think I want to to be independant sometimes, but if he would call me and say he is leaving for good and really do it, I think I would freak out. I've never been good at this. I've never really understood love or had a relationship that went smoothly. I always seem to seek rejection and the more I'm loved, the more I don't want to accept it because I want to be hurt. I like to pity myself or something»

CAMILLE PALIA ON GAY MEN & MARRIAGE

«My experience is that gay men's idea of marriage or any kind of relationship
is rather open. That's why a lot of people are a little skeptical. Gay men-
they're together for 30 years, what does that mean? That means they go out
and pick up strangers every two weeks. That's a very sophisticated view of marriage.
Lesbians are much less sophisticated. Lesbians nest in one big cinnamon bun where
they fuse and it's all very sweet and nice. I like the idea of marriage but i'm not sure
that gay relationship have been tested over time. If we can't convince each other of it,
I don't know how we're going to convince the greater world»
