Introduced by Lisanne Skyler

Four decades ago, Lisanne Skyler’s family paid a thousand dollars for a bright yellow Andy Warhol Brillo Box. Recently, the sculpture sold at auction for over three million. In her film, Skyler recounts her personal tale of the family’s own Brillo Box and provides her compelling take on the course of the art world over the last half-century. Warhol’s yellow three-cent Brillo Boxes were first exhibited at Dwan Gallery. (Lisanne Skyler, 2016, 40 minutes) An HBO Documentary Film.
