(A suggestion for a celebration by Matthieu Laurette)

How to celebrate?
Many ways and options: from institutional to more amateur ones like programming Andy Warhol film screenings, re-enacting of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable and other performances, paying a visit to one of his exhibitions or work in a museum, dressing like him, wearing a white wig, organizing a Factory party, taking polaroid of celebrities and friends, talking to your friend about him and why you like his work, sending a postcard of him to someone, planning a trip to Pittsburgh, learning silk-screen, making masks, inviting friends and making masks, disguises and fancy dresses to dress into one of his painting, eating a Hamburger in front of camera or on TV, painting your walls in silver, saying to everyone you meet that day he or she will be famous for 15 minutes pick one of this idea or find your own

a self-portrait of the artist, a white wig or anything related to him could be use for this celebration.

This celebration is as part of
