There’s a new The Velvet Underground exhibit coming to New York and it is going to be a huge treasure trove of movies, portraits, artwork, and more. The exhibit will run from October 10th to December 3st, and there are even concerts to be announced to run alongside.
Having first opened in Paris in 2016, The Velvet Underground Experience was launched with John Cale performing some VU tracks alongside performers such as Animal Collective and The Libertines.
According to the website, the exhibit will “contain six films, 350+ photos, 1,000+ objects, and a VR greenhouse featuring projections that recreate the atmosphere of the banana album artwork produced by Andy Warhol,” with some more unannounced events also predicted. Including “concerts, special events, lectures, pop-up installations, fashion collaborations, art exhibitions, screenings, performances, and masterclasses.”
In a statement, the exhibition co-curators Christian Fevret and Carole Mirabello said, “The exhibition portrays the creative effervescence of the ’60s NY from which the Velvet Underground emerged to achieve mythic status and change the face of pop culture.”
So, it all begs the question… how much are flights to NYC these days?
