The Velvet Underground Experience, an intriguing new multi-media art and music exhibition spotlighting the iconic band's early NYC roots, will be opening in New York City on October 10. It is the first global exhibition dedicated to the Velvet Underground and its influence on modern music, fashion, art & popular culture, set against the backdrop of the band's early days collaborating with Andy Warhol in NYC in the 1960s.
The exhibition will feature never-before-seen, immersive and interactive content which retraces the band's remarkable journey from the street to the highest echelons of New York society, from the pop music world to that of film, painting and literature.
The multi-media experience will contain six films produced exclusively for the exhibition, alongside an array of portraits of the band members and influential contributors who comprised the New York underground in the 60s such as Allen Ginsberg, Candy Darling, Jonas Mekas and of course Andy Warhol.
Also on display will be hundreds of images, many taken by some of the photographers who witnessed the band's meteoric career such as Nat Finkelstein, Donald Greenhaus, Lisa Law, Fred W. McDarrah, Gerard Malanga, Billy Name, Adam Ritchie, Steve Schapiro and Stephen Shore.
The Velvet Underground Experience is co-presented by Bandsintown and Citi. The exhibition opens on October 10th through December 30th, and is located at 718 Broadway in Greenwich Village, paying homage as well to the neighborhood's deep artistic base.
