Since the 1960s, Andy Warhol has served as the consummate image of the artist: glamorous, iconic, enigmatic. Is it any wonder that he has shaped generations of artists after him?
Now the Metropolitan Museum of Art is examining the artist’s lasting legacy with Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years. The exhibition, which runs from September 18 through December 31, 2012, explores the scope of the artist’s influence with more than 45 works by Warhol compared side-by-side with works by 60 leading contemporary artists from Jeff Koons, who adopted the artist’s factory production structure, to Richard Prince’s pop culture mash-ups
And that’s not the only place Warhol will be appearing this fall. Beginning on November 12, Christie’s will begin auctioning a massive collection of works from the Warhol Foundation.
With Warhol having yet another 15 minutes of fame, let’s take a look via video at some of the artist’s favorite New York haunts, just some of the stories you’ll uncover in Art+NYC.
