It’s official, Canada’s largest Andy Warhol exhibition will finally make it’s way into the city!
A large Andy Warhol exhibition is coming to Toronto, and is here to stay. For six months that is. The exhibition will be opened to the public from Wednesday July 1, until Thursday December 31, 2015. Located in the trendy Yorkville area, 77 Bloor Street West.
Andy Warhol Revisited: A Mirror For Today is curated by Los Angeles based Revolver Gallery. After their immense turn out at their Vancouver showing earlier this year it is no surprise that they have decided to open doors right here in Toronto. Featured pieces include the very memorable Marilyn Monroe portrait, the Campbell’s soup cans and Mick Jagger. With over 120 historic prints and paintings there will be plenty for everyone to view. Other Warhol pieces that will be a part of the exhibition are from The Andy Warhol Foundation for Arts, Inc., Christie’s Auction House, and notable museum and private collections.
Andy Warhol Revisited: A Mirror For Today will not just showcase the pieces, but take each visitor on a educational and engaging walkthrough of his work and the the greater effect on culture. The experience will be both thematic and chronological through audio, visual, interactive mobile apps and more! Incorporating unique details from The Factory, Warhol’s main art studio in New York City between 1962 and 1984, this will surely not disappoint.
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (65+), $5 for students (full-time with ID) and youth (6 to 17), kids (under 5) are free and 20% off a group of 10 or more.
