The Globe and Mail confirms that filmmaker David Cronenberg will be “co-curating” the Canadian appearance of ANDY WARHOL/SUPERNOVA: Stars, Deaths, and Disasters, 1962-1964. The first Warhol show organized by the Walker, it opens in Minneapolis November 13 with 20 photo-silkscreens featuring images pulled from mass-media of Warhol’s day: tabloids, newspapers, and LIFE magazine. What distinguishes it from other Warhol shows is the inclusion of darker imagery–electric chairs, gory car wrecks, and civil rights marchers attacked by police dogs–amid portraits of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor. Which is maybe why Cronenberg is a fitting pick for its showing at the Art Gallery of Ontario next July: his last film was A History of Violence. In preparation for his work, he traveled to the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh to view some of the artist’s early films, including Sleep (which will be included in the Walker film series Factory Films, January 15–26). The exhibition was curated by former Walker curator Douglas Fogle, now curating the Carnegie International.
