Warhol's muse

Last night I had an amazing call with "Baby Jane" Holzer, who is in this photo with Andy Warhol from 1967. She's 82 now and still so full of life, humour, and incredible stories about Warhol, the parties they went to, the incredible creative environment of The Factory, Leo Castelli and how the gallery model evolved, plus so much more. She was talking a lot about how Andy was so committed to challenging the rules and conventions of art back in the 60s and it made me think about artists today and what feels like another huge moment of change in the art world. But it also just massively inspired me to do some exercise and eat well - if I can be half as sharp as Jane in my 80s, I'll be over the moon. Interested to hear everyone's views on artists today who have some of that same iconoclastic energy!

@acc_20GZFTLaaD5w6yZrSJHQqAlNtZV i would say David Hockney is one of the most prolific artist in his 80s as well but still producing so much great work. i think even his recent iPad works is amazing!

Wish I could like-button this post and story. I always liked her work but didn't know she knew Andy. Thanks for the quick summary of your call. Actually, does that mean that theres potential work coming, maybe like a mini beamer (check this out: https://twitter.com/richpointofview/status/1481140421589880837?s=21 - I just by chance found this this morning lol) to project her work onto walls wherever you are, like an editioned (or NFT like) installation 👀
Probably the absolute wrong place to comment this idea lol, but it randomly struck me 😂

Love these! After finally getting around to reading Legacy Russel's 'Glitch Feminism', what comes to mind are artists blurring the boundaries of physical art with activism, online identity, subculture and nightlife. So, for example, Juliana Huxtable whose work often explores race and queer identity among other topics. It's so cool to see how her work is not only building on early internet aesthetics but also pushing forward to ask questions about posthumanism/cyborgism and the boundaries between everyday life and virtual life! Am also obsessed with Sin Wai Kin (their Frieze London booth was amazing!!) and Miao Ying (obsessed with her 'Chinternet Plus' and livestream works) :)

She is such an icon!
Totally agree @acc_20GZEmf5O4RTZeAloXm0HyYxksH, I can definitely see the same urge to question status quo in the works of artists who challenge the notion of gender-asigned roles and aesthetics. I have the work of Franco-Polish painter Apolonia Sokol in mind. In Spring, she reinterprets Boticcelli's epomymous painting using only non-binary and trans models, a way to update the image of womanhood proposed by the Old Master several centuries ago

Would love to read some of those insider stories one day! For me I'd say Tracy Emin definitely has that energy. Amazing artist whose work has always shaken established ideas of what womenhood should look like. I love how she gets people questioning what is taboo and why. 💃
My favourite work probably - My Bed (1998)
