"Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953–1967"
On July 9, 1962, Andy Warhol made his one-person debut at a Los Angeles gallery called Ferus, founded five years earlier by curator Walter Hopps and artist Edward Keinholz. It represented the first showing of Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can paintings, an image he became indelibly linked with. Often installed in a grid, the 32 works were originally hung in a single line at Ferus, an installation MoMA revives here in its look at Warhol's early years, when he turned the art world upside down. Kids will love checking out drawings, illustrated books and other prints that Warhol made in the 50s. Ages 6 and up.
