In 1985, Andy Warhol created Invisible Sculpture via performance art at the famed New York downtown nightclub Area. The concept of Invisible Sculpture was to show that the absence of something could be art. To activate the work Warhol briefly stood on a pedestal in the nightclub. He then stepped off the plinth and walked away leaving only the pedestal and a small wall label reading Andy Warhol, USA, Invisible Sculpture, Mixed Media, 1985.  Now, this performance has been recreated as a new mini diorama with a clean presentation.  The portable box closes securely and includes a handle while the minimalist styling matches the powerful aesthetic of the original performance.
