Weekend Film Screenings: “13 Most Beautiful… Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests”« Back to Events
Please note: This film screening will be screened at 2pm and on an ongoing loop for the afternoon. Also at 2pm, we will offer guests a special ‘last-call’ guided tour of current exhibition “Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection“, which is on view through the end of day Sunday (September 8). The brief tour and film screening (combined) should take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Both activities are free with Museum membership or regular museum admission.
In the 1960s, artist Andy Warhol filmed a series of what he called Screen Tests, each silent film lasting for approximately two minutes. Warhol slowed the finished films to a length of about four minutes each, creating intimate portraits of friends, Factory regulars and well-known artists. This particular film includes original music written for the Screen Tests and includes portraits of musician Lou Reed, actor Dennis Hopper, model and musician Nico and others.
