More from the same exhibition. An art-horror installation and a space for and recording of some performance.
Most of it is totally unintelligible, but as Forteans, I assume we like the unexplained. In any case, I was highly entertained and will re-visit.

Are fake Warhols real Warhols?
"If the world-leading Warhol scholar says it's a Warhol, and you do everything in the mechanical process that the original artist did, and the original artist said 'I want other people to make my paintings', which he did - what is it?

"I don't know the answer to that question."

Ironic and strange.
Start at 5:30 and everything will be clear immediately.
Nice find. That was great.
Totally evoked for me the conflict at Gallipoli in 1915. And an omen for conflict to come. The signs are everywhere.

Paul Cadmus (December 17, 1904 – December 12, 1999) was an American artist, best known for his egg tempera paintings of gritty social interactions in urban settings. His paintings combine elements of eroticism and social critique in a style often called magic realism. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has recently reintroduced a series of his thematic paintings, The Seven Deadly Sins (1945 – 49), for exhibit in the museum’s Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries, and they are amazingly graphic works of surrealist horror art that are really something to see.

Lust (1945)
