Inside Andy Warhol's Hollywood collection
Exhibition of personal and professional art
He may be known for his colourful repetition artwork but at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), another side of Andy Worhol is being shown. Titled Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen, the exhibition features a significant number of Hollywood memorabilia that Warhol has personally collected over his lifetime, all interweaved with a selection of his own artwork.
"This exhibition takes audiences inside Warhol's head, both as an artist and fan," said Laurel MacMillan, TIFF's Director of Exhibitions. "It also gives them an opportunity to see how that thread of celebrity carried through his life and prolific career, and how deeply it affected Warhol until his death in 1987."
Some of the standouts of the Warhol collection include photgraphs of Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. There is even a signed picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger, in which he wrote: "To my friend Andy, best wishes".
The exhibition runs until January 24, 2016 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
