About Filthy Dreams

Filthy Dreams is a blog that analyzes art, culture and politics with a touch of camp. Filthy Dreams is a project supported by the Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.

Originally conceived of as a boozy confetti-filled New York nightclub with the same acts appearing again and again to rousing applause, the founders lowered their goals and expectations to providing commentary and analysis using the same decadent, trashy filter.  In short, we wake up every morning asking ourselves “What Would John Waters Do?” (WWJWD).
