Ahh, consumerism.

Ahh, consumerism.

There are artists that are so prolific that everyone knows their names. Andy Warhol is definitely a member of this elite circle. If you are a fan of Warhol’s work or simply curious about him, the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA) will show an exhibition entitled “Andy Warhol: Polaroids/MATRIX 240”  beginning on Friday, Jan. 27 that will display select Polaroids taken by Warhol (gifted by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts) that often became a basis for his artwork. If you want to join in on some extra festivities, there will also be a celebration of the exhibition’s opening on Friday, Feb. 3 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The event will include free Cheese Board pizza, a gallery chat with Director Larry Rinder and Co-Curators Stephanie Cannizzo and Fabian Leyva-Barragan, as well as a screening of Warhol’s experimental film, “VINYL”.

Of course, it may be that rather than photography or pop art, cinema is your true art love. read more »
