Cataloguing, portraying, partying. The Polaroid camera was an obsession for Andy Warhol
and the perfect way to describe the disposable nature of modern consumerism that he used to cherish so much. During the 70s he focused on a strict schedule to catalogue each instant shot: the "Fever & Flash
" exhibition at Philbrook Museum of Art
features some of these among other artists' works associated with Pop art.
Andy's lacquered little pictures inspired recent considerations
on how his Instagram profile would look like: parties at Studio 54, art performances at The Factory, followers such as Edie Sedgwick (@edie), Keith Haring (@kahring), Jean-Michel Basquiat (@samo), and his manager Frederick W. Hughes (@fhughes). What about his use of hashtag? We really bet that #15minsoffame
could be the viral highlight of it all.
