NEW YORK, NY.- Glitterati Incorporated and Benrimon Contemporary announced an exhibition in conjunction with the publication of Thank You Andy Warhol.

The Thank You Andy Warhol project began one morning in January, 2011, when author Catherine Johnson realized she and her creative community were in the middle of the national economic depression that was crippling the world/art world and wondered, ‘What would Andy do?’ His work and ethos had always inspired her, and she felt sure it had had a similar impact on a variety of creatives who had known Andy and his work.

She began an inquiry. Just some of the luminaries interviewed and featured in this notable book include Frances Grill, Ivan Karp, Jeffrey Deitch, Danny Fields, Ken Heyman, Bibbe Hansen, George Lois, Gretchen Berg, Vincent Fremont, Sylvia Miles, Peter Beard, Liza Minnelli, Patrick McDonald, Simon Doonan, Eric Shiner, and Jamie Warhola.

Their collective descriptions are compelling and paint an incredible picture of both Andy Warhol. Each person discusses the profound influence of Andy Warhol on their lives and/or work, or both. In addition, each person interviewed cites a piece of Warhol artwork that is personally significant to him or her, whether it be an artwork, book, film, creative collaboration, meeting, or conversation with Warhol, as an addition to the description of how Andy affected work and lives. Amazingly, only two people referenced the same piece of Warhol art.

What started as a single inquiry has resulted in a truly personal biography of the most influential artist of our time. To accompany the publication Catherine Johnson has curated a show extracting art from the book and also adding to it: gathering stories about the influence of Warhol could be a "lifelong and worldwide project." She plans to continue to recording, observing and documenting the impact of Warhol on the lives and work of others.

This exhibition includes an eclectic mix of work from artists who contributed to the book featuring works by Billy Name, Anthony Haden-Guest, Blake Boyd, Bob Colacello, Brigid Berlin, Christophe Von Hohenberg, David Gamble, Gretchen Berg, Jerry Schatzberg, Jonas Mekas, Marcia Resnick, Richard Prince, Roberta Bayley, Roxanne Lowit, Ryan McGinness, Vik Muniz, Taylor Mead & Trey Speegle.

“We prefer our art to look like art and our artists to behave like artists. Andy courageously ignored those expectations.” ~ Ryan McGinness
