Description

Campbell’s Soup Cans, Coca-Cola Bottles, Silver Clouds, the Marilyn Diptych—Andy Warhol’s iconic images are among the most familiar of the 20th century, and they made him a leading figure in the Pop Art movement. His silkscreens, paintings, photographs, and even a bit of sculpture explored the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity, and advertising. Ms. Angevine invites us to learn more about this creative thinker who helped collapse the boundaries between high and low artistic culture. “Everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes,” he once declaimed. And that’s not a bad intro to Ms. Angevine’s lecture and to the SFMOMA exhibit of Warhol’s work that opens this May.
