NYC Premiere of Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films

The films of Andy Warhol are provocative milestones of underground cinema, flaunting convention simply by letting the gritty world be itself. They include a motionless eight-hour shot of the Empire State Building, a short of Lou Reed drinking a Coke, and erotic acts aplenty.

In Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films, curated by The Andy Warhol Museum, 15 never-before-seen, digitally restored selections from the 1960s are unveiled. Five artists representing a musical trajectory from the post-Velvet Underground 70s to today—Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna), Tom Verlaine (Television), Martin Rev (Suicide), Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces), and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound)—perform live alongside Warhol’s celluloid oeuvre, featuring Marcel Duchamp, Edie Sedgwick, Donovan, Marisol, Nico, Warhol himself, and others.

Nov 6-8 at 7:30pm

BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, 30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY
