    Andy Warhol did Karen Kain? I am dumbstruck… Wonderful to know the AGO is open again. Was walking today in my old T-shirt from the AGO Basquiat exhibition yonk-years ago…

    Neat! There was a Warhol pop-up a few years ago which I enjoyed. Might have to check this out!

      If it was the same pop up that I saw, it was mostly prints. The AGO show is a great collection of bigger and better works and a little less of the commercial stuff. It was one of the better AGO exhibits.
