This publication would not have been possible without the collaboration and support of many individuals, and we are especially grateful to the participating artists: Pablo Bronstein, Triple Canopy, Nicole Eisenman, Pablo Helguera, Beth Katleman, Simone Leigh, Sebastian Ruth, and Paul Scott. Other significant contributors include Sarah Ganz Blythe, William Hancock-Brainerd, Casey Seymour Kim, Matthew Lawrence, Dominic Molon, and John W. Smith.

Jan Howard, Elizabeth A. Williams, Dominic Molon, and Sarah Ganz Blythe provided curatorial support for Raid the Icebox Now, and Carson Evans and Carolyn Gennari provided artistic direction for this publication. Our appreciation to Erik Gould for working through numerous production challenges in bringing this work to fruition. A special thank you to Arielle Eisen, Kit Son Lee, and Rocio Delaloye for offering their creative contributions to this publication. Our understanding of Andy Warhol's project and RISD at that time was made possible through the rich holdings of RISD Archives and the support of Andrew Martinez and Douglas Doe. Special thanks go to the registrar’s office, especially Joseph Leduc and Jac Parker for accommodating the many requests and facilitating new ways of working with the collection. Sionan Guenther obtained images for this publication. Marny Kindness and Kajette Solomon navigated many logistical challenges. The publication benefited from the design expertise of Brendan Campbell, Derek Schusterbauer, and Carson Evans. Thanks also to Stephen Wing, Laura Ostrander, and the entire installation crew, including Thom Morin, Michael Owen, and Kris Samuelson. Amy Pickworth is the assistant director of museum publications and senior editor. Jeremy Radtke is the assistant director, digital initiatives.
