Warhol's Superstars at Von Buhler's CVB Space - Exhibit Extended Due To Popular Demand:
Andy Warhol: In His Wake, an exhibit/installation organized by von Buhler at her gallery and studio space in Manhattan, opened on Thursday, February 22 and has been extended until April 12, 2007. The closing reception will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2007 from 6 - 10PM. Warhol superstars in this exhibit are Taylor Mead (recently in the Whitney Biennial), Ultra Violet, Billy Name, and Ivy Nicholson. Also on view are works by artists who documented Warhol or who have been influenced by him. Von Buhler created an interactive fortune-telling machine named The Great Warhola for the show, and she and her assistant, Molly Weingart, have transformed the space into Warhol's silver factory for this exciting exhibit.

Gothamist Review of Andy Warhol: In His Wake:
"Cynthia von Buhler, who wore a silver strapless dress to the VIP preview and looked very Dita von Tesse with her black hair and pale skin, stole the show with her tongue-in-cheek work. If you crawl through a hole in the art space, you’ll discover her Cynth-O-Matic, a vending machine that celebrates celebrity and commerce by selling 100% Genuine menstrual blood, pubic hair, eyelashes, and nail clippings. Meanwhile, her Sir Repetitious features live rats that you, the viewer, can feed. The rats (which are her pets) crawl along pipes that figure as the spine in the transparent torso of what is a depiction of S&M author Gary Kadet. And yes, von Buhler depicted Warhol too, with the fortune-telling machine (like out of the movie Big) The Great Warhola." - Stephanie Nikolopoulos, Gothamist Read the whole review HERE.

Chelsea Now and The Villager Review of Andy Warhol: In His Wake:
“I looked at a lot of photos and then I improvised,” said artist and gallery owner Cynthia von Buhler, statuesque and futuristic in her silver vinyl mini-dress, like Jane Fonda from “Barbarella.” “Some of the details are very accurate, like the columns, and the legs.” She pointed to the bottom half of a silver-painted mannequin. “There were legs just like that in the original Factory. In some respects I’ve been faithful to the pictures I’ve seen, but I took some liberties, too. The foil-wrapped chandelier is an extrapolation. I was playing with the aesthetic a little bit there.” - Ed Hamilton, Chelsea Now & The Villager Read the whole article and see the photo of von Buhler with The Great Warhola HERE.
