1- This image, Dollar Sign, by American Pop artist Andy Warhol is made from acrylic paint that has been silkscreened on canvas. Does this qualify it then as a painting or a silkscreen? Why?
2- American Pop artist Andy Warhol was interested in American consumer society.In the late 1960s and 70s, he created and worked in a studio he called "The Factory." He hired numerous other artists to physically make his work for him, his only contribution being the idea and his signature when it was done. How does this complicate the notion of the originality and ‘authenticity’ of an artwork? Is this still Warhol’s own work even if it was made by someone else? Do you find that you somehow look at the artwork differently now that you know it was not physically made by the artist who signed it? How are the idea of a factory, the subject of the painting and the painting process he uses somehow in sync?
B) Examine the following image and answer all the questions:

1)- Germaine Koh’s Overflow consists materially of nothing more than hundreds of old glass bottles randomly placed on the gallery floor. Yet this work is not at all a display of industrially produced objects but is rather a site-specificinstallation that responds to the location it is displayed in. After reading the artist’s statement about the work included to the left of the image and perhaps after reading some of the reviews about it she lists below that, ask and answer this: what is the content/meaning of this work relative to its social context?
2) Consider this as well: would the meaning of this work change if it was removed from this social context? If so, how? If not, why?
3)Clearly this is thoughtful work. But how do you respond to the fact that the artist did not actually ‘craft’ or make the objects but simply displayed them?
