OCTOBER 30 TO JANUARY 24  In 2015 it’s very easy to indulge our fascination with celebrities. The beautiful people themselves dole out details via social media, while magazines, TV shows and bloggers feed our appetite for even juicier gossip. But long before the likes of Perez Hilton and Lainey Lui, there was Andy Warhol. Arguably the ultimate fan, the pop-art pioneer was known for documenting his interest in public figures like Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando through his paintings, prints, films and more. Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen, a new exhibit at the TIFF Bell Lightbox pays homage to the man who became as famous as the stars he depicted. Organized by the Andy Warhol Museum, the collection contains Warhol’s early artworks, films, videos, photographs, prints and Hollywood memorabilia, including his childhood scrapbook of screen sirens like Greta Garbo and Kim Novak.  —Linda Luong
