Andy Warhol Campbell's Soup Cans Exhibition @ MOCA

There are few artists as inextricably tied to a single piece as Andy Warhol is to his

There are few artists as inextricably tied to a single piece as Andy Warhol is to his Campbell’s Soup Cans. Inspiring a slew of pop-art devotees and setting off a wave of imitators, Warhol’s take on the classic American soup can may be one of the most recognizable works of art in the country, if not the world. The piece itself features 32 individual Campbell’s soup can screen prints – one of each variety available at the time – and carries a gargantuan amount of anecdotes with it about inspiration, takes on modernity, commercialization and irony; yet the mysterious artist’s true purpose for choosing the cans as a subject is not concretely known. Either way, in order to honor Campbell’s Soup Cans‘ debut into the art world, which took place at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles during a show where Warhol was nowhere to be found, MOCA has managed to secure the iconic work of art partly in tribute to the significant role played by the Ferus Gallery as well as its revered director Irving Blum in the development of the Los Angeles contemporary art scene. For those lucky enough to be in LA, go check out a piece of history.
