Pittsburgh, PA 15212

During the 1960s, Warhol’s work appropriated images, techniques, and technologies that have long been described as generically “American” or “middle class.” Alex J. Taylor, assistant professor and academic curator at University of Pittsburgh, will present new research on Warhol’s now iconic canvases of Campbell’s Soup cans and his engagement in the 1960s with corporations, specifically, America’s burgeoning packaged food industry. Following the reading, Blake Gopnik, Warhol biographer and New York-based art critic, leads a Q&A focusing on the points of intersection between Grudin’s latest book, research, and the themes of the exhibition Adman: Warhol Before Pop.
