Experimental film, family-friendly fun, and iconic art—here’s our picks for the week.
• This week is your last chance to see Andy Warhol’s 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans canvases in an exhibition inspired by the way they were first exhibited at the Ferus Gallery, Los Angeles, in 1962.
• Drop by the exhibition Making Music Modern: Design for Ear and Eye on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. for Stratocaster Sessions, when a MoMA staff member will play a recently acquired 1957 Fender Stratocaster guitar and 1959 Bassman amp live in the gallery.
