Another major Warhol exhibition coming to Toronto

For many, the highlight of the annual Toronto International Film Festival is celeb-spotting. Perhaps that's why TIFF decided to focus on the notion of star-gazing for its upcoming fall program. And what better star-gazer to celebrate than prolific pop artist Andy Warhol?

From October 30 until January 24, TIFF will host Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen, an exhibition organized in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the artist's hometown.

The show will feature more than 800 pieces of artwork and memorabilia as well as short films and episodes from Warhol's television series. While Warhol focused on numerous celebrities, this exhibition will highlight his work with Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Kim Novak and Elizabeth Taylor.

Fittingly, from November 7-January 16, TIFF will run Liz and Marilyn: Black and White in Colour, a retrospective series on these two iconic movie stars. The Festival will also showcase Warhol's filmic work in the Nothing Special: Andy Warhol's Star System series. It'll feature 20 films, which Warhol made between 1963 and 1968.

Earlier this summer, LA's Revolver Gallery brought Andy Warhol: Revisited to Yorkville. This show runs until December 31, meaning both exhibitions will run simultaneously.

Will you visit both Warhol exhibitions? Let us know in the comments.
