Andy Warhol has definitely marked a “pop” culture with multiplied icons and fascinating superstars. In 1963, he launched the Factory in Manhattan, a factory to create images that attracts talent, poets, musicians and distinguished visitors from around the world. From this rich heritage essential to our contemporary life and in the framework of the Warhol’s exhibition “Life, Death and Beauty” presented at BAM, Musiques Nouvelles (featuring singer/performer Angélique Willkie) propose an audiovisual performance combining live music (new pieces by Musiques Nouvelles and covers of songs by Lou Reed and John Cale), projections and documents (from the archives of photographer/poet Gerard Malanga, Warhol’s main collaborator in the 60’s Silver Factory) in an New York loft atmosphere. Pop for ever!
