Hilton | Asmus Contemporary, 716 N. Wells St., announced the addition of a new photo exhibit, Andy Warhol's House.
The exhibit, opening Thursday, Oct. 10, will feature David Gamble's photos of Warhol's house in New York City after death that provide an impossibly intimate look at the private life of the famed artist and include photos of his medicine cabinet, kitchen and living roomall untouched following his death. (The exhibit is slated to close Sunday, Nov. 10.)
Gamble said that from the start his goal was to "put Andy back in the house," to make the photographs look so realistic that a viewer could imagine that the artist was just in the other room grabbing a snack. In 1997, he used silkscreen technology to physically screen pop art versions of Warhol into some of his photossome of which are featured in this exhibit.
