"They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself" - Andy Warhol
To escape from suburbia in Bedford, TX this afternoon, I headed over to Fort Worth's Contemporary Art Gallery for Warhol and The Shared Subject exhibit. The Gallery is small which made my time there feel valued and not rushed. Warhol has never been a favorite of mine, but anyone can respect how he influenced the pop culture society with his art, films, and bizarre way of life.
The exhibition features Warhol's polaroid collection donated to the TCU Art & Art History Department from the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in 2007. Also on display are works by Rineke Dijkstra, Douglas Gordon, CS Leigh, and Tony Scherman.
The exhibition will be displayed through February 1st, 2009.
Opening hours are Thursday through Sunday from 1-6pm.
