We get a very … original, if more than a little unsettling, view of Andy Warhol’s famous soup cans: “Warhol Soup Cans: Naked & Unlabeled” features the Pop Master’s icons de-robed. Lindsay Wohlman, an artist from Boulder, CO, does the unveiling, and offers this rather peculiar “first”.
32 of Warhol’s cans get the treatment and it is the Ferus Gallery, in Los Angeles – which exhibited the cans for the first time in 1962 – which will host the
soup-kitchen… er, art exhibition. The artist has asked for financing – you can check out Lindsay Wohlman’s kickstarter page, linked here.
