Fascinating. What are you getting per unit? And how exactly did these "end up" in your possession?
1 year ago
I know a guy. Price = TBD
1 year ago
possession is only 9/10ths of the law, I bet he 'found' them from a guy who also 'found' them..

I could probably 3D print some of those
1 year ago
might be too big for the printer

or outsource the actual fab work..... would probably be cheaper to source and buy existing.
1 year ago
well, that is a Öyvind Fahlström piece so it's most likely somewhere in the 50k to 500k range... lets just produce a knock off in china
1 year ago
A good sign manufacturer could make those for about $2K USD
1 year ago
yes, but then they wouldn't be hung in the stockholm museum of modern arts
1 year ago
at 3 or 4 feet long we could hang them on the outside of the building

why in the sam hill would those signs be in a museum?
1 year ago
it was the 60s.... warhol put a bunch of soup cans in museums around the same time
1 year ago
those are just signs though...fonts put inside an ellipse..fine for a sign and all..but in a fuckin museum?..andy warthol also supreme blow hard and celebrated because he was an asshole who took everyday shit and called it art..pomposity at its finest
1 year ago
"the medium is the message" baby

i'm not gonna defend warhol as imho he is to blame for most dumb post-modern developments in art and culture and paved the way for blowhards like damien hirst and jeff koons.

i will however defend most other pop art and its intentions.

as for that fajlström piece up there, several interpretations are possible:

juxtapositioning fuel for cars (esso) with fuel for minds (lsd) arguing the point that humans are basically just machines as well...

OR

warning of the dangers of consumerism and capitalist entities (like esso) taking hold of originally subversive and countercultural fetishes (like lsd). considering what HST wrote at the same time about height ashbury and the following implosion of hippie/ counter culture i'd say that is a valid reading

OR

the exact opposite, counter culture adopting the insignia of capitalism and big business and giving them a subversive spin.

see, art can be fun!

^ that's on a plaque in the museum or via the tour guide.... isn't it?

no, i pulled that completely out of my ass.....

but to be fair pop art might be the field of art theory/ history i know most about/ like best.
