EXPOSED: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films
In celebration of the museum’s 20th anniversary, The Warhol is proud to present the world premiere of Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films in partnership with The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance.
This new performance is comprised of 15 short Warhol films that have been recently digitized by MPC/Technicolor and have not yet been publically screened. Five songwriter-composers, reflecting the generational trajectory and musical influence from post-Velvet Underground ‘70s through today have been selected to write and perform music for the films.
Five songwriter-composers have been selected to write music for the films and will perform live on stage:
Tom Verlaine (Television)
Martin Rev (Suicide)
Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna)
Elanor Frriedberger (The Fiery Furnaces)
Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound)
