Rain machines; alarmed kosher pickle jars filled with gemstones; replica corn flakes boxes; 'disco decor'; time capsules; art bombs; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows that are clouds; paintings that are also films; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; holograms. This is a book about the vast array of sculptural work made by Andy Warhol between 1954 and 1987 - a period that begins long before the first Pop paintings and ends in the year of his death. In 3D Warhol, Thomas Morgan Evans argues that Warhol's engagement with sculpture, and traditional notions of sculpture, produced 'trespasses', his sculptural work bisected the expectations, allegiances and values within art historical, and ultimately social sites of investitute (or territories). This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major, but overlooked aspect of Warhol's oeuvre, providing an essential new perspective on the artist's legacy.
