This Saturday at the Michael C. Carlos Museum there is a film exhibition on the modified polaroids and silver gelatin prints of Andy Warhol. The show explores the world famous artist in a different light by exhibiting the work he did which was different from what we know him for. The museum’s official website states, “In contrast to his most iconic pop art prints, these lesser-known works of art reveal a thoughtful and self-reflective artist interested in multiple techniques and stages of completion.” The full show started Aug. 25 and will end Nov. 25.
