Andy Warhol exhibition and cafe
While in Tokyo I went to the Mori Art Museum in Roppongi where they currently have an exhibition called Andy Warhol: 15 minutes eternal.This amazing exhibition has over 700 photographs, screen prints, drawings, short films and paintings, some of which are owned by the Warhol family and are hardly ever shown to the public. It is the largest exhibition of Andy Warhol's art to have toured Asia, starting off in Singapore and finishing in Tokyo, via Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
To coincide with the exhibition there was also an Andy Warhol cafe with American food such as hotdogs and burgers. Also, stamped onto the bread were the words Andy Warhol and the dollar sign. To make things even better, the cafe is situated on the 52nd floor so you get a wonderful panoramic view of Tokyo including the Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower.
I would really recommend anyone in Tokyo to visit this excellent exhibition before it finishes on May 6th. If you're there then why not have a hotdog and can of Campbell's soup while marveling at the Tokyo skyline and debating whether you prefer the uber modern Sky Tree or the retro Tokyo Tower.
Personally I prefer the later, what about you?
