SOUP’S ON AT THE ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO – BUT YOU WON’T SEE IT UNTIL AT LEAST LATE SUMMER

The Gallery is in lockdown, like so many other institutions, and will probably stay that way until at least the end of July. Philanthropists Jim and Margaret Fleck bought ANDY WARHOL’s ‘Campbell’s Soup I’ series in the 1970‘s from The Factory, America’s epicentre of Pop Art. Understandably the work opened up a huge debate on what can be classified as art.AGO Director and CEO, STEPHAN JOST, says this is the only complete series of Andy Warhol’s soup cans to be found in a public institution. Each piece of the 32 canvases is different, and Warhol’s errors make them so close to art that they become art.
