La muerte del arte

¿ha muerto el arte? ¿ya no es lo que era? ¿nos engañan algunos artistas de hoy? En este video hablaremos sobre la muerte del arte y como algunos antes compartieron nuestra idea sobre que el arte parece haber acabado. Ortega y Gasset, Danto, Andy Warhol, y los movimientos de vanguardia se dan cita en este espacio. Reflexiones cómicas como las de Ter u otros que reflexionan sobre la muerte del arte, como las que hace Avelina Lésper.

Podemos decir que hay dos tipos de personas, los que realizan el arte y los que la consumen y eso será clave para entender el arte actual.

Andy Warhol’s “Lonesome Cowboys” wrestling scene

Louis Waldon, and Joe Dallesandro wrestle Eric Emerson amongst the cactus in Andy Warhol’s Lonesome Cowboys. The guy in the beginning is Tom Hompertz who was only in two Warhol films and this was the only one that got edited (sort of) and saw release. The other was a surf film that is still in the archives.


Hide/Seek: “Camouflage Self-Portrait” by Andy Warhol

Discussion by Jonathan Katz, co-curator of “Hide/Seek” and Chair of the Visual Studies Doctoral Program at SUNY-Buffalo.

Andy Warhol was famous for much longer than the fifteen minutes of fame that he predicted for everyone in his 1968 quote. Indeed, Warhol became so famous for being famous that his art tended to take second place to his personality. Warhol had a peculiar kind of fame: he posed himself as a blank against the aggressive celebrity culture of the 1960s. His pale features, deadpan expression, obscure utterances, and famous wig created a persona that resisted questions or connections, let alone intimacy. In his series of Camouflage Self-Portraits, each of which had a different color of camouflage pattern superimposed on the artist’s face, Warhol built on the idea that portraits are a mask. Warhol hides in plain sight, not camouflaged at all, instantly recognizable yet hidden behind the facade of his own making.

“Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture” was on view at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, from October 30 through February 13, 2011.

Skylar Fein – Eulogy for Frank O’Hara: Pop Art and the Queer Death Drive

Larry Rivers delivered a eulogy for Francis “Frank” O’Hara that became one of the most infamous art world events of the late 1960s, but you’ve never heard of it. Artist Skylar Fein will read this eulogy, courtesy of the NYU Library Special Collections, and relate it to Rivers’s work. Fein makes the case that just as Rivers’s work prefigured Pop Art, the eulogy itself foreshadows the response to AIDS a few years later.
