Appropriation of Andy Warhol hit a new low at the Gagosian Gallery’s uptown space on Halloween night, where the central gallery was festooned in Douglas Gordon collages of mirrors and ripped, burned Andy images of Jackie, John Wayne, Elvis, etc. Lou Reed took one look at pink and yellow bananas from the Velvet Underground cover and promptly left. Nearby attendees peeled off posters from a pile referencing Warhol’s Most Wanted
, a la Felix Gonzales-Torres.
