Warhol Live this Weekend!

From the Warhol website:
Warhol Live, an exhibition that examines Andy Warhol’s work through the lens of music and the performing arts, features over 640 works and objects including paintings, silkscreens, photographs, works on paper, illustrations, films, videos, album covers, and ephemera from Warhol’s personal archives.

Organized by The Warhol in partnership with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, through an extensive period-by-period examination of Warhol’s life and work, Warhol Live offers viewers a glimpse into Warhol as producer, filmmaker, interviewer, publicist, glam rocker, and celebrity. Warhol Live explores the artist’s early fascination with Hollywood glamour and stardom to his iconic silkscreens and paintings of celebrity royalty, including Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, and Debbie Harry of Blondie.
There is a Warhol Live opening reception on Saturday, June 13th featuring special guest DJ glenn [electric], and a performance by Dean & Britta (formerly of Luna) from 7 to 11:30pm.Link
