This week on Up Close, what does it take to make an artist? This week, we speak with a biographer of one of the most famous artists of the 20th Century, and one woman who is working her way up in the field, in the middle of her career.
Andy Warhol is a name only slightly better-known than his iconic pictures of subjects ranging from Campbell’s soup cans to Marilyn Monroe. But as he was crafting art, he was crafting himself as an artist. Deborah Davis explores that development in The Trip: Andy Warhol’s Plastic Fantastic Cross-Country Adventure.
And then, Molly Crabapple has a story to tell about what it’s taken to get to this point in her career, with a number of successful independent shows and projects, some awards won, and a perch as a contributing editor at Vice. Her memoir is Drawing Blood.
