Andy Warhol Enterprises: Pop Culture Deconstructed at the IMA

The Indianapolis Museum of Art has announced an attractive upcoming offering called Andy Warhol Enterprises, open from October 10, 2010 through January 2, 2011. This intriguing show deals with the mind and outpourings of Andy Warhol, and the manner in which he systematically imploded not only art, but cinematography, television, magazines, pop music and all things creative over the decades.

A lifetime, epic exploration of the unlikely juncture between the world of art and the world of commerce is the theme of Andy Warhol Enterprises. These days, the business of art is being taken apart and put together again minutely by some real heavyweights, and Andy Warhol leads the pack in this regard. It was Warhol, in fact, who started the whole thing. The fine sensitivities of the world’s artists in the 1950s were shocked into awed respect by the sheer success of his consumer-oriented art, lead by its ground-breaking image of a gigantic Campbell’s Soup can, now a pop-art icon.
