Coming Soon: Unseen Andy Warhol Films

At long last, the public is being granted something it’s long been denied: access to the art world. Last week, MoMA announced a collaborative effort with The Andy Warhol Museum and visual effects company MPC to digitize approximately 500 titles shot by Andy Warhol throughout the Sixties and early Seventies. While Warhol is known for his visual iconography in the fashion and pop art worlds, he was also a prolific maker of short art films, evidenced by the “nearly 1,000 rolls of original 16mm film” being digitized in the effort. The project is set to debut next month in a presentation called Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol that will also feature a live orchestra score. The show will hit the road in Philadelphia, before heading to UCLA and then the Brooklyn Academy of Music. For more details, head over here
