TOMORROW: Andy Warhol Film Day.

A pretty hilarious event to have on Good Friday: The USC Fischer Gallery will be screening two of Warhol’s films from the 60s. Yes there will be wine, no it won’t be the blood of Christ(?).

You can also check out his photography in the museum, interesting because ya know… it’s not soup can prints, it’s a somewhat unknown part of his artistic side. Some notable portraits included in this collection are Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali, Candy Spelling, designer Gianfranco Ferre, Bianca Jagger, Artist Georgia O’Keefe, and Andre Talley of Vogue among others.

Info:
USC Fisher Museum of Art, 823 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles; noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Ends April 18. Free. (213) 740-4561


From the LA Times review:

The museum has paired photographs with thematically relevant quotes from Warhol’s personal diary and his book “Exposures.” On one wall, next to a Polaroid series of Bianca Jagger (who, like Warhol, was a Studio 54 regular), he writes: “I’ve never seen her take drugs. That’s her real beauty secret.”

Beside a black-and-white image of an inflatable raft floating in a swimming pool reads Warhol’s famous view of Los Angeles: “I love L.A. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic — but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.”
