This accessible introduction to Andy Warhol and his body of work explores the question: Can a soup can dismantle all the conventions of art in one fell reproduction?
The exploration will begin with works by Marcel Duchamp, noting the ways Duchamp’s work paved the way for Warhol’s. It also takes a look at women artists who were creating Pop Art contemporaneously with Warhol and discuss why they did not rise to the same level of fame as Warhol. Setting Warhol’s art in context may help us draw some canny conclusions about what a soup can can or can’t do.
Admission is free.
