On the occasion of the inaugural Frieze Masters in Seoul, Castelli Gallery will exhibit a booth of works by American Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, who had his first exhibition with Leo Castelli in 1962. The booth includes paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages. We invited Daniel Belasco to write about two of the sculptures in the booth, Profile Head and Surrealist Head II.
In the early 1960s critic and art historian Irving Sandler began regularly interviewing artists for the Casper Citron radio show on WRFM. On the program listeners could learn about New York exhibitions and hear artists speak with Sandler about their own works on view. On January 28th, 1963, Sandler was joined by Jasper Johns to discuss the latter’s solo exhibition at Castelli. Installed at the 4 East 77th street location, the show took place from January 12th to February 7th. The thirty-minute interview has been transcribed below and is followed by documentation of Johns’s 1963 exhibition.
