A major Andy Warhol retrospective exhibit, the first organized by an American museum in decades, is on display at New York's Whitney Museum. Titled “Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again,” the show contains over 350 works. As Jeffrey Brown reports, it explores tensions between conformity and innovation, celebrity and privacy, and examines how Warhol expressed commentary and desire in his art.
