Warhol is looked at today as this master of the 20th century, but the critics did not like Warhol

I love how art can change your life

Out of 10 critics you may have had three who were supporters, and the rest were all naysayers. Now there are no naysayers.

I always enjoyed Dada and Surrealism. I went to the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and then I transferred to the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.

I love Manet. What I adore so much about him is that there’s no anger in his work at all.

I think back fondly to my childhood. I had the country farm that was my grandfather’s. I have really fond memories of being there. I have fond memories of being an artist and coming into the consciousness and enjoying art around four or five years of age.

The basic story line is about art leaving the realm of the artist, when the artist loses control of the work.

One of the things we look to the ancient societies for - we look to ancient Greece, we look to ancient Rome - is actually the openness and not having a repression taking place.

I’m interested in the morality of what it means to be an artist, with what art means to me, how it defines my life, etc. And my next concern is my actions, the responsibility of my own actions in art with regard to other artists, and then to a wider range of the art audience, such as critics, museum people, collectors, etc.

I feel that art has allowed me to become a better human

Jeff Koons (American Artist)

Art to me is a humanitarian act, and I be-lieve that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to affect mankind, to make the word a better place (this is not a cliche!).

What I learned very early on was that people would try to form you into whatever mould they desire,

Jeff Koons (American Artist)

My art deals with desire but consumerism is just one little aspect of it. I’m more involved in a philosophical dialogue about life

Minimalism was my father-art. For the first time, I was forced to recognize an entire space, and the people in it (I had to look at the light socket on the wall, just in case, I wasn’t going to play the fool).

Vito Acconci (American Designer - Landscape Architect - Performance and Installation Artist)

Until minimalism, I had been taught, or I taught myself, to look only within a frame; with minimalism the frame broke, or at least stretched.
