Summary This volume brings expert opinion and first-hand testimony to bear upon the events surrounding the creation and destruction of Andy Warhol’s Thirteen Most Wanted Men at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. The complex constellation of art, politics and gay life surrounding Warhol’s mural and its painting-over comes alive in 13 interviews--with historian Hilary Ballon, critic Douglas Crimp, poet Diane di Prima, 1964 World’s Fair head of television Albert Fisher, poet John Giorno, art historian Anthony Grudin, civil rights historian Felicia Kornbluh, former Warhol assistant and poet Gerard Malanga, filmmaker Jonas Mekas, art historian Richard Meyer, former Warhol assistant and photographer Billy Name, Rockefeller biographer Richard Norton Smith and architect and critic Mark Wigley. The interviews are introduced by the show’s co-curator Larissa Harris, and accompanied by reproductions of all of the Thirteen Most Wanted Men; photographs of Warhol and the Fair by Factory regulars and photojournalists; and rarely seen archival documents from Warhol’s Time Capsules.
