I finally got to visit the MASH UP exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery! I’ve been waiting for this weeks before the exhibit was even ready and Vernice and I finally found time to go and check it out.
The exhibit was freakin’ HUUUUGE. If you were planning to go see it I would give yourself at least 2 hours if you really wanted to take your time and walk through and look at everything. I definitely enjoyed myself a lot but Vern and I were able to finish all of it in about an hour because we both aren’t the types to sit and stare at the art and try to analyze. We pretty much looked at each piece, admired for a couple seconds, and moved on.
One of my favourite walls would definitely be the Warhol Marilyns. I got to see a bunch of Warhol’s work at the exhibit that happened in Vancouver last year, but I definitely did not mind seeing it again. Marilyn Monroe was such a beauty icon. That mixed with Andy Warhol, a pop-art icon, really created something that’s so cool and unique and just… awesome. Ugh I love it. 10/10 would have a Warhol Marilyn wall in my future home.
They used the entire gallery for the exhibit, and made great use of all the space too. There definitely wasn’t a single boring moment to say the least. If you’re from Vancouver, or you’re planning to visit soon, I would say definitely spend the money to go see the exhibit. Costs just under 30 dollars but it really is an eye opener. It address so much of our culture (TV, Music, Computers, Technology, Pop-art…) in unique perspectives. Definitely glad I got to see it.
Also Tuesday nights are a great night to go if you don’t want to spend the 25 dollars. They have entrance by donation on Tuesday nights. As if Tuesdays in Vancouver weren’t bomb enough…
By the way! Make sure you follow me on Snapchat (@azhng) to keep up with all my adventures. Vern and I had some pretty hilarious snaps while we were in the Art Gallery…
Talk to yall soon!
