‘Holistic’ Warhol retrospective set to open at New York’s Whitney Museum

Few 20th Century artists explored and merged the topics of commercial culture, celebrity and media quite the way Andy Warhol did. And for the first time since 1989, his adopted hometown of New York is gearing up for a retrospective of his life’s work. Hosted at the Whitney Museum of American Art in the Meatpacking District near Manhattan’s West Village, the show is spread out across three floors at the museum. More than 350 works are on display, some of which are on loan from other museums, collections and galleries for the retrospective.As its name suggests, “Andy Warhol-From A to B and Back Again,” the exhibition is not modest in its aim to capture the whole of Warhol’s iconic oeuvre. And so the landmark “Soup Cans” are front and center at the show, as are “Coca Cola (3),” “Mao” and other famed works. Indeed, the show makes pains to provide equal footing to Warhol’s earlier sketches, as well as his lesser known works, such as his works devoted to disasters and the occult.
