Komar & Melamid

Andy Warhol Giving His Soul to Komar and Melamid, February 6, 1979

Description


The highly acclaimed Russian dissident artists, Vitaly Komar and Aleksandr Melamid, have turned their wry satirical wit to American mythology. The works presented in this exhibition, all done in the two years that Komar and Melamid have lived in New York, reflect the witty and biting humor for which this two-man team has become world famous. The political, religious, and social themes of American life are subjects for their critical scrutiny.
