In 1968 Valerie Solanas walked into Warhol’s studio, The Factory, and shot him. He was critically injured and spent several months recovering in hospital. His film ‘Women In Revolt’ can be seen as a “deliberate challenge, a show of defiance” against Solanas and her links with the women’s movement. A satire of the women’s liberation movement, the film starred three of The Factory’s transvestite ‘superstars’ and followed them through an essentially improvised plot. This poster displays one of the stars, Candy Darling, adopting a stance of defiance with arm raised in protest. The title appears to be scrawled in red nail varnish. Warhol’s name was itself a brand and by promoting it as an ‘Andy Warhol’ film, he effectively draws on his own celebrity as a marketing tool.
