Key films by Warhol and his collaborators are presented, from the earliest period of the Factory when Warhol announced he was no longer making painting
Some of Warhol’s series of Screen Tests will also feature, these were short video portraits of visitors to the Factory:
Ikon presents several reels showing individuals such as Lou Reed, Marcel Duchamp, John Cale, Edie Sedgwick, Billy Name, Lucinda and Ondine
This is the last event of the Ikon Eastside’s season – I think I’m right in thinking it’ll open again (in the same venue) in May 2009.Â The closing party goes by the name ‘Here & Now & The Future (Do you want to dance and blow your mind?)‘Â and sounds fun:
Paying an affectionate homage to â€˜The Exploding Plastic Inevitableâ€™ and The Velvet Underground and Nico, â€œthe most infuential and unpopular band in historyâ€, there will be performance, film, light, oil wheels, music, dancing and marshmallows. Dress code is strictly black and white.
That’s on 31 October from 7.30pm til late.
