“I grew up in a working-class family, which owned no art and few books.” James Benning (yes, that James Benning), blogging for the Wexner Center for the Arts, where Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms is on view through February 15: “My main interest then was Number Theory, a field in mathematics driven only by intellectual curiosity with little connection to the realities of science: for example, there is no practical value to the prime numbers. So when Warhol presented the art world with Brillo boxes, they spoke directly to me, and the early criticism that cried “cultural terrorism” brought me even greater appreciation. It was like being able to square the circle, but that’s not what I want to write about.”
