Quote: “Warhol is beloved by the right and the left for exactly the same reason…”

Warhol is beloved by the right and the left for exactly the same reason: he performed a ritual purging which seemed to deprive the art work of its complexity, freeing both those in power and those fascinated by it to talk about what really interests them, namely power in the land of commerce.

—Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe, BOMB 21, 1987
