Andy Warhol Enterprises
Throughout his career as an artist, filmmaker, director of the Factory, band manager, magazine publisher, and television entrepreneur, Andy Warhol intentionally blurred the line between art and commerce, calling into question the very values of art by claiming, “Good business is the best art.” Andy Warhol Enterprises examines Warhol's complex and multifaceted relationship with commerce in both his work and his life--from his highly successful career as a commercial artist to his reign as a major cultural trendsetter in the eighties. Features essays by prominent scholar Thomas Crow, as well as an interview with Vincent Fremont, a close associate of Warhol. Hardcover: 160 pages. Dimensions: 9 x 11.5”.
Andy Warhol Enterprises was on view at the Indianapolis Museum of Art from October 10, 2010 - January 2, 2011.
