Hey everyone! When I heard a Warhol Exhibition was coming to Toronto, I knew I had to get in on that action. I’ve been a fan of Andy Warhol’s artwork for a long time. In first year when I was decorating my room in residence, I knew I needed to get his iconic 100 Soup Cans as well as his Marilyn on my wall (how cliche, Liz!) I’ve always been drawn to the colour and whimsy of his works.
Warhol Revisited is an exhibition that is currently showing at The Revolver Gallery in chic-Toronto Yorkville. It includes a large selection of prints, paintings, and even Polaroids from the Andy Warhol Foundation.
At his peak, a portrait done by Warhol was the ultimate status symbol. Those who could afford to commissioned him to create their portraits which reaffirmed their ranks in the business and social elite. As soon as you walk through the doors, you are greeted with an installation of soup cans. I didn’t want to ruin that first image for you, so here’s a picture of me with the soup can prints instead!
All over the 2 walls in the little film/video viewing area are self portraits of Warhol himself.
Of course, I had to include this Chanel print from his ad collection…because beauty blogging!
The Revolver Gallery at 77 Bloor Street West is open daily from 10am-8pm, and Warhol Revisited is on now until December 31st, 2015. Tickets are only $10 for general admission (at the door), however you can purchase tickets in advance online (but there’s a processing fee.) More details at http://warholrevisited.com
I will definitely come back at least once more before it leaves Toronto! Such a fantastic space, showcasing awesome art!
