Andy Warhol — From A to B and Back Again

Andy Warhol — From A to B and Back Again at the Whitney Museum broadly show up Andy Warhol’s various kinds of unimaginable works. Because he is considered as one of the most prominent people of representing American art, showing his great artworks at New York, where the center of an art market in the US, has a significant meaning. Warhol’s process of creating and choosing the content, are always controversial and challengeable to the traditional artistic value. His works lead people to think about what is the essential value of art and the criteria of the high and low that conventionally set.

He reveals himself as a businessman, and it shows how art is becoming a branch of economic principles and the direction of the next step for modern art. Based on his machinic process of silk-screening, he used popular motif such as Campbell Soup cans or Coca Cola bottles that many are familiar with them. As like, regardless of rich or poor, everyone knows Coca Cola bottle, Warhol wants art should be the same as that. So, it could be considered as his controversial thinking of art and artworks satire the traditional art's world monopoly of evaluating good or badness of art. Through his various works, he keeps saying us to say there is no right and wrong in art.
