ANDY WARHOL "COMMITTEE 2000" POLAROID, 1982
"Committee 2000" is a perfect emblem from Andy Warhol's ultra-glamorous period during the last days of disco. Created in 1982, during Studio54's heyday, it is likely that the confetti-strewn champagne glasses were photographed in the legendary night club, Warhol's favorite New York City haunt.
Considered as a "modern day still life" this unique Polaroid photograph is a fantastic creation that reveals Warhol's practice and process during the 1980's. These unique photographs represent a more personal statement compared to his other iconic "factory-made" imagery pulled from existing sources. His hand and choices are revealed raw behind the camera as he aestheticizes the subjects (both human and object) that intrigued him.
Despite the indulgences the subject represents, this work was created with philanthropic motivations. This image lead to an iconic silkscreen of champagne glasses and confetti entitled "Committee 2000". It was created for the Committee 2000 in Munich, Germany where funds were generated for arts-related initiatives that would be realized leading up to the new millennium.
