Christie’s Pop Culture Auction

Poster for the Exploding Plastic Inevitable Live!, Andy Warhol, The Velvet Underground and Nico at The Dom, New York City, April 1 – 30, 1966. Collection of Moe Tucker. 14 x 22 in. Estimate: $7,000 – 9,000.

Christies will conduct its Pop Culture auction, June 23 in New York. The sale consists of a broad cross section of  punk, rock, hip hop, film and street art memorabilia from the 1960s forward, which collectively challenge accepted notions of fine art. As noted by Johan Kugelberg in the auction catalog’s introduction, “young artists (and collectors!) increasingly refuse to play the game of hi-brow verses low-brow, having replaced said such with something that we can now coin as uni-brow. Point taken, but we can only hope the phrase doesn’t catch on. Browse the full catalog here
