JULY 1 TO DECEMBER 31 His subjects were some of the 20th century’s most famous figures, brands, objects and landmarks; the artist himself became as illustrious as all of them. Such is the importance of Andy Warhol’s screen prints, paintings, films and myriad other creative endeavours that he remains arguably as influential today as he was during his 1960s prime. And so, naturally, a survey boasting many of his best-known works is big news for art lovers and the uninitiated alike. Curated by Los Angeles’s Revolver Gallery, Andy Warhol Revisted features more than 120 of the celebrated artist’s prints and canvases, including his iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Mickey Mouse and more. Adding to the immersion, the exhibition is also expected to incorporate design elements reflecting Warhol’s Factory studio.  —Craig Moy
