A central work in next week's contemporary art auctions is Andy Warhol's disturbing 1963 silkscreen painting, Tunafish Disaster, expected to go for around $6 million-$8 million at Christie’s, and the central show that everyone is supposed to be talking about is the Urs Fischer circus at the New Museum. Perhaps we should contrast these two creations as test case in artistic subversion versus the market.
