I was recently looking for something to do with my daughter in downtown Toronto and noticed a listing for a pop-up pop art exhibit of Andy Warhol art. The exhibit, Andy Warhol: Revisited, is in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood until the end of this year.
I love Warhol’s art and have seen exhibits of his work a couple times before. This exhibit has some iconic works, such as a Marilyn Monroe and the soup cans. But it also has works I’ve never seen before, including some of his commissioned portraits of American business elite. (There is portrait of Georges Marciano founder of Guess, which was the previous occupant of the location before the exhibit.) The entrance fee is the best deal I’ve encountered for a world-class exhibit.
My daughter particularly loved the works of his diamond-dusted shoes, portraits of various queens, and the purple cow:
I loved it all, but particularly loved that they had an affordable postcard book for sale!
