75 Reasons to Live: Michelle Tea on Andy Warhol

Michelle Tea is a novelist, poet, and literary curator (and former Open Space blogger!). She’s talking about Andy Warhol’s Self-Portrait (1986). Loads more on Warhol here. We’re going to work a Warhol Wednesday today. Two more on Andy coming up in just a bit.

Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? Last January, during SFMOMA’s three day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks—7.5 minutes or less!—on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it ‘manic splendor’—and it was. You can follow the 75 Reasons to Live talks as we post them by checking in here.

    This year I will have hair.

  • I’m enjoying Michelle’s reading here. I recently had the opportunity to photograph Michelle in conjunction with a story she wrote for my portrait/story site, I Live Here:SF. Her energy and enthusiasm for life is contagious.
