Climate activists glue themselves to Warhol work

1 min read

Climate protesters glued themselves to an Andy Warhol painting at the National Art Gallery of Australia in Canberra on Wednesday (November 9), the latest in a spate of activist demonstrations in art galleries around the world.

Video footage released by the Stop Fossil Fuel Subsidies group showed two female protesters using adhesive to stick their hands to Andy Warhol’s “Campbell’s Soup I,” on display at the national gallery in Canberra.

Several blue scribbling were also seen across the series of 10 paintings, which were protected behind glass frames.

The National Gallery of Australia declined to comment on whether the artwork was damaged.
