Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids provides insight into the artist who sought to capture the world with his camera. An exhibition of about 250 of these photos wa put on public view for the first time at The Nasher Museum at Duke University in 2010. These photos of celebrities capture the younger, more vulnerable edge of the faces we have come to know so well, many of them topless or stripped-down in a way that indicates a sense of intimacy that Warhol insisted on. See you who can recognize!

Sadly, we feel like a major chapter in the world of art and music passed away yesterday with the death of legendary musician and member of Andy Warhol's inner circle, Lou Reed. Fronting the influential Velvet Underground (house band of Warhol's Factory) as well as a successful solo career, Reed was an icon of NYC, and of rock culture at large.

Well, we should have known. We, or I should say I because I am speaking only for myself, used to think maybe I shoudn't tell the masses that I own a cat, but seeing that Dali, Warhol, Matisse, O'Keefe, Picasso, Kahlo, Weiwei, Klimt, Klee, Gorey and others all loved their cats, I no longer feel ashamed. Its a cat union party up in here. Thank you Flavorwire for grabbing this collection.

Andy Denzler has taken the long since dead medium of video tape and injected it with a shot of creativity and imagination. Heavily influenced by Andy Warhol's screen tests of the 1960‘s and Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Hovering and shifting constantly between abstraction and figuration, his work reinterprets the way both painting and video can be brought together.

It was bound to happen. The world's largest soup company, Campbell's, is set to release (at Target no less) limited-edition Andy Warhol inspired soup cans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol's infamous Campbell's soup can art. Warhols' seminal 32 Campbell's Soup Cans remains his most iconic work, and while you go to buy bulk product remanufactured as hip mass commercialism (Target), you can have a slice of... limited-editioned soup. Use only in earthquake emergencies.

We are getting to that time of the summer, where London gets a sporting focus for a few weeks, much to the chagrin of locals who probably get enough tourism as it is. But the arts programs and curation at some of London's top private galleries and public institutions have been spot on all year, and Gagosian Gallery has got into spirit with Warhol and Basquiat's 1985 collaboration, Olympic Rings.

Marshall. The Floor Show explores the variety of ways contemporary artists have expanded the possibility of the sculptural medium by removing it from the once-compulsory pedestal. Photos and more after the jump..

Love is, perhaps, the most difficult emotion to define, it tends to encompass all other feelings in one massive flurry of passion, lust, bliss and pain. Centuries have passed by, relationships have flourished and faded and so has love, but no one can give the proper definition of love. Happy Valentimes to all the other confused, heartbroken lovers out there. We'll get it one of these days...
