Old Bags

This month’s Sacks Appeal exhibition, at the Museum of Art & Culture, in Missoula, Montana, displays an occasionally uneasy alliance between consumerist culture and the first-rank artists—Andy Warhol and Annie Leibowitz among them—who created the more than 70 shopping bags on view. Keith Haring’s cluttered, frenetic design (pictured), which reimagines the handle as a gaping red mouth, is an especially gleeful example of biting the hand that feeds.
