PITTSBURGH, PA.- The Andy Warhol Museum, in partnership with The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance, is proud to announce the world premiere of Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films.

The performance, presented in celebration of The Warhol’s 20th anniversary, combines 15 never publicly seen Warhol films with live performances by songwriters that represent a musical trajectory from the 1970s until today.

Five composers – Tom Verlaine, Martin Rev, Dean Wareham, Eleanor Friedberger, and Bradford Cox – were selected to write and perform the music. Wareham, guest music curator for the project, added, “I am excited to be working on these unseen Warhol films, and to perform alongside my musical heroes Tom Verlaine and Martin Rev, and with two favorite younger artists – Eleanor Friedberger and Bradford Cox.”

The short films date from the 1960s and have been digitally restored by MPC/Technicolor. They feature notables such as John Giorno, Marcel Duchamp, Allen Ginsberg, Mario Montez, Marisol, Taylor Mead, Jack Smith, Mary Woronov, Edie Sedgwick, and Warhol himself. Geralyn Huxley, curator of film and video, said, “It’s so wonderful to be able to share these newly digitized films that reveal different aspects of Warhol and his filmmaking.”

The world premiere of Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films will take place in Pittsburgh at the Carnegie Music Hall (Oakland), on Friday, October 17, 2014. It will open on the West Coast at UCLA on Friday, October 24, 2014, followed by an East Coast debut at The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on Thursday, November 6, through Saturday, November 8, 2014. “It’s an honor to be partnering with BAM and UCLA on this exciting performance/film commission. I feel so fortunate to be premiering these Warhol films as part of a project that involves such an amazing dream team of artists,” commented Ben Harrison, curator of performing arts.

The project was produced for The Warhol by staff members Ben Harrison, Geralyn Huxley, curator of film and video; and Greg Pierce, assistant curator of film and video; in consultation with Wareham. It was jointly commissioned by The Warhol, The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2014 Next Wave Festival and UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance. Production design is by Clear Story.

This production is presented as part of The Andy Warhol Museum’s 20th anniversary observances.
