“I don’t think art should be only for the select few. I’m not the High Priest of Pop Art, that is, Popular art, I’m just one of the workers in it.” While it might be hyperbole to characterize a conversation with Andy Warhol as revealing, his 1966 interview with Gretchen Berg is considered the most expansive. In typical Warhol plain-speak, those words she extracted explain why his name is a universal twenty-first century art reference and cultural bellwether. Campbell’s soup cans, triple Elvises and The Factory spring to mind, and his methods of collaboration and production still inspire debate.
