15 Minutes Of Fame, Or Longer

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" is an expression credited to Andy Warhol, who included the words in the program for a 1968 exhibition of his work at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden.

During his radical, culture shaping, prolific period as a pop artist during the 60s-80s, he loved celebrities, embraced consumer culture, challenged social conventions, and erased distinctions between high and low culture. They would become popular obsessions with the advent of the Internet, social media, cameras on mobile devices, and TV entertainment that has given everyone the power to have their “15 minutes of fame”.

Interview Magazine, the publication Warhol founded in 1969 to feature intimate conversations between some of the world's most well-known celebrities, artists, musicians, and creative thinkers, continues to exude his iconic persona in bringing together the avant-garde and the populist.
