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 live on stage:
