Warhol Reimagined: The New Factory

The stunning artworks and pop art imagery of Andy Warhol clashes with the style and flair of today's modern artists in an upcoming show near you!

Curated by and presented by Project One Gallery, the show features many great artists. It's Warhol Reimagined: The New Factory! This is going to be a good show so RSVP for the opening reception or just stop by when you get a chance.

There are factory artists and soup can artists.
Factory artists picked from a selection of over 60 of Warhol’s works. The works were chosen based on their importance in Warhol’s history as an artist and overall representational aesthetic. The artists have to re-interpert their selected Warhol image into their own style.

Andy Warhol is best known for his Campbell’s soup can works. First displayed at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962, these works now hang in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The MOMA display is recreated via the talents of 32 well known and emerging artists – each reimagining a different can in their own light. I participated as a soup can artist.

The show runs from March 10 at 7:00pm - April 19 at 11:00pm. The opening reception is March 10th, 2011 from 7 pm until March 11th 2 am. I will definitely attend the show, but unfortunately will not be able to make it for the reception because I am still in Singapore!
