About Brillo Box (3 ¢ off)
A Brillo Box plays the lead in the HBO Documentary Film ”Brillo Box (3 ¢ off)” by Lisanne Skyler, which is now playing in the Mini Cinema in connection with the exhibition. In 1969, Lisanne Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol Brillo Box (3¢ Off) sculpture for $1,000. 40 years later, with Warhol’s reputation as a contemporary-art visionary long secured, the same piece sold for more than $3 million at a record-breaking Christie’s auction in New York. Blending a humorous family narrative with Pop Art history, ”Brillo Box (3 ¢ off)” follows this iconic Andy Warhol work as it makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the contemporary global art market.
