Abstract :
In 1992 Kass began a large-scale plan of reassessing, revitalizing, as well as critiquing the artistic practices and oeuvre of Andy Warhol. 30 years after the completion of Warhol's first silkscreen images, in her own paintings and silkscreens, Kass substituted her likeness for Warhol's in the self-portraits; Gertrude Stein for Mao in the Chairman Ma series; and Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and Jackie Kennedy were jettisoned in favor of Barbra Streisand in the Jewish Jackie series. By tessellating a range of female subjects into Warhol's formats and color runs, Kass has engaged in a complex strategy that has forced a reconsideration of Warhol's (and pop culture's) assumptions about celebrity, and has modeled an alternative view, with a new cast of characters. The Warhol Project has allowed Kass to explore the construction of racial, sexual and gendered identities screened through the classic pop art of Andy Warhol's work and style. Kass has populated the majority of the exhibition's paintings with celebrations of women, some of them famous, all of them linked through their common experience as cultural producers. Catalogue contains essays by Nochlin, Rosenblum, Berger, Staniszewski, and Plante. ;
