The Art, Inspiration, and Appropriation of Andy Warhol

The Children’s Museum of Waterloo Region
January 8, 2009 – May 23rd, 2009

“In creating The Art, Inspiration and Appropriation of Andy Warhol, my first step was to look back into ‘Warhol’ history. Did a similar exhibition already exist? Would I, in fact, become an appropriator? That idea in itself was not a problem but an opportunity, perhaps the same opportunity the appropriation artists in this exhibit took when they put their artistic stamp on Warhol’s vision. To my surprise this exhibit is an ‘original’, the first time Warhol and appropriations of his work will hang side by side. This show explores one of the 20th century’s greatest artists and his historical relationships with the artists that came before him, his relationships with artists during his lifetime and his continuing relevance to contemporary artists.”
