The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh has recently announced that a never before seen film by the artist will make it’s world premiere this October. The 16mm film, San Diego Surf, will premiere at the Museum of Modern Art this October, and then shown again for a week in January 2013.
To coincide with the 2012 Olympic Games, London’s Gagosian Gallery is exhibiting Olympic Rings, a 1985 collaborative painting between Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol inspired by the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. The duo had worked together on a number of pieces between 1983 and 1985, synthesizing Warhol’s Pop art aesthetics with Basquiat’s frenetic, graffiti-inspired line work.
Olympic Rings at Gagosian Gallery London is on display until August 11, 2012.
