In a partnership with BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance, the Andy Warhol Museum has announced a performance to celebrate their 20th anniversary entitled "Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films."
The performance blends together 15 of the late artist's films that have never been shown publicly with live musical performances by Tom Verlaine, Martin Rev, Dean Wareham, Eleanor Friedberger,
and Bradford Cox. The unseen, digitally restored short films feature an impressive roster of talent, including Edie Sedgwick, Marcel Duchamp, Allen Ginsburg, Mario Montez, and Warhol himself, just to name a few.
“It’s so wonderful to be able to share these newly digitized films that reveal different aspects of Warhol and his filmmaking," said curator Geralyn Huxley in a press release. The world premiere of the performance is scheduled for October 17 at the Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland in Pittsburgh, followed by an event on October 24 at UCLA, and finally at BAM from November 6 through November 8.
