Sex Life

John Wilcock is from Village Voice and Interview co-founder who assisted on some of Andy Warhol's early films, hung out at his parties and quickly became a regular at the Factory. Wilcock went into work interviewing the artist's closest associate, supporters and superstars. He assembles a prismatic portrait of one of modern art's least knowable artist during his early years of fame. The Autobiography and Sex Life is the first biography of the artist and likely the most revealing portrait of Warhol, each of its interviews offers a piece of the puzzle that was Warhol.

The book features more than 120 images (including original portraits of numerous Factory superstars by Shunk-Kender) plus illustrations and film stills, including many never seen before. The book will be available June 24th through the Gagosian Gallery in NYC. If I was anywhere near NYC I'd for sure wait in line for this fine piece of material.
