Canada’s largest Andy Warhol exhibit has opened in Toronto

Canada’s largest Andy Warhol exhibit has opened in Toronto

Andy Warhol Revisited opened in Toronto on July 1 and is the largest Andy Warhol exhibit to ever come to Canada. This is exhibit provides an engaging and educational walkthrough of Andy Warhol’s development as an artist and his effect on culture which is still evident today. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so we decided to go and check it out!

The exhibit is not located in a traditional gallery space; 77 Bloor St. West is actually an old Guess store. When Rivlin was making plans to bring the exhibit to Toronto, he knew that Yorkville was where he wanted it to be. “It’s where fashion and finance intersect — at Bay and Bloor. (Warhol) was all about high society and money, but also fashion and pop culture,” says Rivlin.

The exhibit showcases over 120 Warhol prints and paintings. You can find his more famous pieces such as the Campbell’s Soup Cans and Marilyn Monroe, but it was nice to see lesser-known pieces as well. It seems like Ron Rivlin really understands who Andy Warhol was and is ably to perfectly capture Warhol’s personality with this multi-level exhibit. Upon entering, I choose to do an audio tour of the exhibit to learn more about the history of Andy Warhol and his pieces. I highly recommend this as it also gives great insight into his life and provides more details of his art.

Revolver Gallery is a Los Angeles based gallery showcasing and selling the largest collection of original Andy Warhol pieces. Revolver Gallery was founded in 2012 by Ron Rivlin, a Toronto native who always had a passion for Andy Warhol and his art. Rivlin purchased his first Warhol piece three years ago and has since grown his collection to over 100 pieces. The gallery is mainly comprised of Rivlin’s own pieces.

If you haven’t been yet, don’t worry because Andy Warhol Revised is open until December 31. The cost is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for youth and students and children under the age of five are free! It’s conveniently located and so cheap so there’s no excuse to miss it.
