National Gallery, Scotland, April 25 —
I went to a super-fun party last night! The awesome peeps @ARTISTROOMS were celebrating 5 years of Artist Rooms! Congrats guys! And thanks for inviting me (actually the sent my invite to the wrong address but had my name on the guest list anyway! 🙂
Met many cool peeps like Anthony d’Offay, @FionaHyslop & @CreativeScots. Also got to meet the dashing Glyn Davis, instructor of Warhol MOOC!
Andy may have idolized celebrity, but his filmmaking was about as un-Hollywood as one can imagine. What would our world, our media, and our culture be like in some alternate reality where “Hollywood Filmmaking” never really took hold, and style was dominated by “Warhol Filmmaking”?
Thanks, Edie. This is a really interesting argument. But I think we need to acknowledge that Warhol was in thrall to Hollywood. And I wonder to what extent we can only understand his cinema as a riposte or challenge to the norms that had been established by Hollywood?
Then we decided we were getting a little pretentious for a party so we got drinks and danced.
Congratulations Art Rooms! You guys show amazing work and throw the best parties! How can you beat that!?
