Andy Warhol and his Pop art-peers upended the commonly understood distinctions between â€œhighâ€ and â€œlow,â€ making art that blatantly celebrates consumerism and mass culture. In Campbell's Soup Cans he quite literally reproduced an object of mass consumption. When he first exhibited this series of thirty-two canvases in 1962—the number corresponds to the soup varieties Campbell's sold at that time—each one was arranged on a shelf, like groceries in a store.
A wide variety of Warhol's classic Campbell's Soup Cans, 1962—a sequential work in MoMA's collection—are neatly organized just as the artist intended his original series to be displayed on this wearable homage to the Pop art-icon. Occupying an important position at the intersection between fine art and popular culture, Warhol's work is ideal for a project such as UNIQLO at MoMA. This piece is part of the MoMA Special Edition product collection. Made of durable canvas. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
