Apparently the soup can’s fifteen minutes are not up yet.
Campbell’s soup has gotten a Warhol-inspired make-over and will go on sale at Target this weekend. 50 years ago, Andy Warhol created “Campbell’s Soup Cans” and the company is commemorating that anniversary with four pop art cans complete with quotes from the artist.
Just to review: art was created with soup cans as the subject, only to later have those same soup cans imitate the artwork in which they were a subject. It’s this wild, meta, infinite loop of life imitating art imitating life.
