Mihir – On Explanation and Art. Initial thoughts

After visiting the Andy Warhol’s solo show at the Stable Gallery in 1964 Arthur Danto famously declared it was “the end of western art”. It was such a shock for him to see such work in a gallery. I heard him talk in London over 10 years ago. He was an eminent Warhol academic and during the talk shared the moment he came across Brillo box sculptures by Andy Warhol.
