Malibu, CA – In conjunction with The Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery, and owner Seda Baghdasarian, the Revolver Gallery of Beverly Hills and owner Ron Rivlin are proud to bring its traveling exhibition Andy Warhol: Icons & Symbols, to its new home in Malibu, CA at the Mailbu Lumber Yard from August 30th to October 13th.
The exhibition will be traveling from its summer location at the prestigious L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, where it opened to critical acclaim.
“Malibu is the perfect location for the second stop of our worldwide tour for the exhibition. We started at the L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, the mecca of celebrity culture. I think it is important to share Warhol’s work with everyone, and especially focus on how his work is so much more than iconic imagery of celebrities. That is why I wanted to team up with Seda and the Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery, to bring our collection to the premier shopping destination in Mailbu, the Mailbu Lumber Yard.” – Ron Rivlin, 2013
The Revolver Gallery boasts one of the largest inventories of Warhol works, and this exhibition will feature more than 30+ original screenprints from the pop art master. Works to be featured will include the infamous Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Truman Capote, Mao and Campbell’s Soup Cans prints. Also featured at the exhibition is Andy Warhol’s Personal Polaroid Camera, which was recently featured by Digital Trends and PopPhoto.com.
Andy Warhol was one of the 20th century’s most influential artists and cultural critics.
As one of the key players in the Pop Art movement, he developed his own method of screenprinting in the early 1960s, and it wasn’t long before he was creating groundbreaking works that brought attention to American pop culture and the lifestyle of Hollywood celebrities.
The Malibu Lumber Yard Gallery is a nature inspired, eco-conscious art and design gallery located in the center of the prime-shopping destination in Malibu, CA. The exhibition is sponsored by the prestigious Surfrider foundation, which has a strong presence in Malibu.
Andy Warhol: Icons & Symbols will run from August 30th through October 13th.
