Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films
Created in celebration of the Andy Warhol Museum\’s 20th Anniversary, this multimedia performance event unveils 15 never-before-seen 1960s films captured by Andy Warhol, featuring Marcel Duchamp, Edie Sedgwick, Donovan, Warhol himself, and others.
Five songwriter-composers who reflect the generational trajectory and musical influence of post-Velvet Underground 70s to today — Guest Music Curator Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna), Tom Verlaine (Television), Martin Rev (Suicide), Eleanor Friedberger (the Fiery Furnaces), and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter)—perform live original scores to these unseen celluloid gems from one of America’s most iconic art-makers.
This work was commissioned by The Warhol Museum, The Brooklyn Academy of Music's 2014 Next Wave Festival and Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA.
