Art as Self-Referential, Self-Satisfied, Self-Absorbed & Self-Serving Alan Schechner does Jenny Holzer doing Andy Warhol.
LED sign, Acid Etched Aluminum sign, Inscribed Blue Granite
Date: 1999


This is my rant against self-referentiality in Art, a device that ghettoizes art and restricts its possibility on commenting on and galvanizing change in society.

This piece was priced at $57,500, which was the average price of recent sales of Jenny Holzer's LED signs, Brass Plaques and Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can prints in 1999.
