Blog Theme: Trumpism – Interview with Greg Thornbury

A feature of the evangelical world since Trump was nominated and elected has been the inability of many of Trump’s evangelical supporters to see Trump’s flaws. John Fea (who will be one of my guests in a future interview) coined the term “court evangelical” to describe these evangelical leaders. Robert Jeffress, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell are often named among these court evangelicals. Another evangelical figure which has puzzled many observers due to the strength of his dedication to Trump ...

A new art exhibition exploring the greed of private space travel is inspired by Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos

Contemporary artist Lincoln Townley is famous for his distinctive portraits of Hollywood royalty. Townley has just launched his new collection, Universe, which will exhibit in London's Saatchi Gallery in September. The galactic-themed collection is inspired by the age of private space travel, which Townley says is motivated by "greed, self-publicity, [and] a desire to do things that other people cannot do." Townley says that prominent tech figures collect his work in the US, and some collector...

Reconsidering The Art And Life Of Valerie Solanas

Solanas is most famous for having shot Andy Warhol, of course, but she had an artistic life long before that moment. In the beginning, the writer and Warhol Factory superstar Ultra Violet wrote, “beyond her overheated rhetoric, she had a truly revolutionary vision of a better world run by and for the benefit of women.” – The New York Times

Hospitality Financial Leadership – Everyone Is Famous for 15 Seconds | By David Lund

This pop-culture expression was coined by Andy Warhol and a friend Nat Finkelstein in 1968. I'm taking some liberties here but in 1968 it was 15 minutes of fame and in today's world - who's got 15 whole minutes anymore - it's 15 seconds!

Flying in Style

Here's a neat little retrospective on what air travel was like on the Concorde.My favorite factoid in there was the part about Andy Warhol boosting the Raymond Loewy-designed flatware whenever he had the chance, to the point of asking a seatmate if she was going to take hers and, when answered in the negative, scooping it up for himself.I was kinda hoping someone would offer replicas on Amazon, but no dice. The real deal is crazy expensive on eBay, as one might imagine. . [Author: Tam]

Need zing in your Zoom? Let Warhol and the avant-garde vamp up your video conferences

It’s hard to make much of a mark in the strange, static world of video-conferencing. But we could all learn a trick or two from famous arthouse film-makers, from Jim Jarmusch to Andy WarholOf all the many weirdnesses of the age of lockdown, video-conferencing must be one of the weirdest. This is the first time many of us have used Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts and Houseparty. And, invaluable as they are, few would disagree that they are a strange way to communicate. From the stilted family gro...

Take a Virtual Tour of the Andy Warhol Exhibition at the Tate Modern

Not only did Andy Warhol miss out on the internet, but the internet missed out on Andy Warhol. Surely, these days he would be prolifically posting to his Instagram and YouTube from home, indulging multiple celebrity and pop culture obsessions. Warhol’s Polaroid aesthetic and pioneering of the self-as-brand helped create 21st century online culture. Maybe he was the original “influencer,” though Warhol was more of an instigator. But he’s become too familiar for us to appreciate his unique...

Why Warhol painted soup cans

In 1962, Andy Warhol exhibited his famous Campbell's Soup Cans paintings for the first time and cemented his place as a Pop Art powerhouse. Previously, Warhol had bridged his commercial and fine art efforts with paintings based on comic strips and advertisements, but he (rightly) felt that style had already been done by Lichtenstein and others. So why soup cans? Smithsonian has the story in an excerpt from Blake Gopnik's new book Warhol. From Smithsonian: Warhol’s final breakthrough ...

The best LGBTQ online entertainment

Before social distancing became the new normal, April was chock-full of major LGBTQ events, and while the coronavirus has caused massive cancellations (RIP Black Party 2020!), queer community leaders aren’t letting COVID-19 get in the way of their spring flings. LGBTQ outlets around the world have created virtual community centers, concert halls, and dance clubs to combat the isolation caused by the pandemic, and the options for connecting seem endless. The only problem? With a wealth of no...

Last Five Minutes of Fame

Last Five Minutes of Fame LAST FIVE MINUTES OF FAME Abe Gurko It was 1973; I was short, fat, and four-eyed with no immediate hopes of having a life worth living. By this point in my teens—-bittersweet sixteen to be exact—-the only thing I aspired to be was someone else. Preferably someone famous. By no means was I a candidate for becoming a jet setter, and no foreseeable signs of hobnobbing with the lanky Mick Jagger, the groovy Penelope Tree or the beautiful, haunted Marianne Faithfull. Nope...

I’m sitting at home wearing a Breton top and a pair of shades, my hair freshly bleached, my belly swollen and sore.

Social Adhesion: New Museum Dedicated to the History of Stickers

For most of human history, art was created one piece at a time. When it moved from cave walls to portable canvases, that must have blown minds. Ditto for when we gained the ability to reproduce art, cranking out millions of copies. But an often overlooked innovation that really got art, or minor art at least, into our lives was simply to add an adhesive backing.To several generations' worth of youth, stickers were the fastest way to prettify something, vandalize something or establish some attem...
