Gender & Sexuality
Pop Art, the movement of art that Warhol worked within, felt and reflected the pulse of contemporary American culture, a culture that was driven by the deterioration of the separation of the private and public sector.
To quote Warhol, “Pop art took the inside and put it outside, took the outside and put it inside”.
These blurring of personal boundaries and rise in publicising the private made a perfect environment for Warhol and other Queer artists to slowly start turning the world to face them.
Below are two curated digital resource galleries to give a glimpse into both Warhol's and Theorists confrontation of Gender and Sexuality.
