Reading List | The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol

 

Chris Trela (producer of the documenatry Guest of Cindy Sherman) teamed up with photographer Gretchen Berg and counterculture icon, John Wilcock (one of the founders of Interview Magazine & The Village Voice) to reissue the 1971 classic, The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol. They've updated the content with some interesting stories and new photos and kept the entertaining interviews: Taylor Mead, Nico, Viva, Marisol and the rest of the usual suspects in tact.  The editors will be discussing the book and signing copies at the Gagosian Shop (988 Madison Ave) on June 24th. From 6-8 pm.

 

 

This is a rare exception to the usually unimpressive mix of new Warhol media products that have over saturated the market. The industrious producer/publisher Chris Trela releases this substantive work that is both interesting and entertaining.

What do you think?

Personally...

I love Andy and I truly love Gretchen and John - AMAZING FOLKS THOSE PEEPS. I was wondering if you are gonna do anything on the artist FOOX (David Foox). He is a little phenomenal himself and rolls around in the same circles as Andy Warhol used to including Patrick McMullan, Couri Hay, Ian Schrager and the whole socialite party scene on the UES of Manhattan. Aside from that though, FOOX's work is amazing and I am proud to say that I own several prints by this great artist. His website is http://foox-u.com and I would love to hear your thoughts about his art. Thank you xoxo Samantha
