Andy Warhol: Beyond the Soup Can
If you ask anybody to name the most famous contemporary (OK, almost contemporary) artist, nine times out of ten, they’ll say, “Andy Warhol.”
They’ll be right. Between the Campbell’s soup cans, the Marilyn Monroe portraits, the Brillo Pad boxes, and Warhol’s saucy blonde wig, he was the most outrageous, most innovative and most game-changing artist of the late 20th century.
Through September 2, SFMOMA is celebrating Warhol big time. The mega-exhibit covers most of one floor of the museum and parts of two others. All the classics are there, including those famous/infamous cans, along with Warhol’s sketches, self-portraits, movies, books, posters, TV shows and more.
