NEW YORK, NY.- Eighteen prominent artists, including such notables as Bob Dylan and Patti Smith, will offer visual and aural contributions to a tribute to Andy Warhol that opens at the June Kelly Gallery, 166 Mercer Street, on September 6. The exhibition will continue through October 2.

Entitled “15 Minutes: Homage to Andy Warhol,” the exhibition comprises silk-screen prints and original recordings by well-known artists, writers and performers who knew Warhol, worked with him or who were inspired by him. The exhibition has already been presented at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

Other artists participating include Yura Adams. Connie Beckley, Brigid Berlin, Susan Breen, Nat Finkelstein, Vincent Fremont, John Giorno, Jeff Gordon, Alexander Heinrici, Ivan Karp, Christopher Makos, Billy Name, Carter Ratcliff, Path Soong, Ultra Violet and Lawrence Weiner. Each artist contributed a 12-by-12-inch print and an audio work.

The exhibition is another indicator in the renaissance of interest in Warhol’s remarkable career, accomplishments and influence. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will present an exhibition on Warhol’s impact on contemporary art that opens in mid-September.

15 Minutes-Warhol
The June Kelly Gallery exhibition will include original examples of Warhol’s work. Plans are moving ahead to take the show to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Beijing next year.

For his contribution, Dylan gave a track from his song “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” in which Dylan comments on Warhol’s concept of the fleeting nature of fame and success, as well as a self-portrait silk screen print. Nat Finkelstein offers a screen-print photograph of Dylan and Warhol at Warhol’s studio “The Factory” with Warhol’s painting of Elvis Presley in the background.

Patti Smith has written a poem, “Edie,” musing on the life and death of Warhol star Edie Sedgwick. Gordon has produced a 15-minute interview with Warhol that omits the questions and largely consists of his terse yes-no answers. He also created a screen print of a box labeled “uh, yes..uh no.”

The artists’ prints and their recordings are available in both deluxe and regular limited editions. The luxury edition of 85 copies contains signed and numbered silkscreen prints, three CDS, four vinyl records and notes. The regular edition is limited to 1,964 copies with offset prints, the CDs, vinyl records and notes.

The exhibition was organized by Gordon and Soong, the principals of Wu-Shan, Inc. It opened last year at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton.
