 Past Exhibition

Deborah Kass: My Andy: a retrospective
June 22–September 8, 1996
read catalogue essay and see larger image  back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

In this solo exhibition, Deborah Kass explored issues of appropriation, identity, and the influence of Andy Warhol's imagery. Kass's borrowing of Warhol's images, particularly of celebrities, questioned the values we place on both popular culture and fame-specifically, who is famous and why. Kass's own self-portraits in the style of Warhol help us understand how the self is determined by a variety of cultural, social, and personal factors rather than by biology or genetics alone. Kass's work was also included in the Ciphers of Identity exhibition.
