Chelsea Girls (Warhol, 1966): ICA Cinema, 7pm
This is aprtt of a short Andy Warhol season at the ICA. All the details here.
Chicago Reader review:
'The most celebrated Andy Warhol feature (1966), and for
many the best, is made up of a dozen 33-minute reels that are projected
two at a time, side by side. The sound varies according to chance and
the projectionist, as only one sound track is played at a time. The
people shown include such Warhol “superstars” as Nico, Ondine, Gerard
Malanga, Marie Menken, Mary Woronov (who later costarred in Eating Raoul),
Ingrid Superstar, Brigid Polk, and International Velvet. All apparently
residents of Manhattan's Chelsea Hotel, they engage in a number of
activities and dialogues for 210 minutes, and the results are often
spellbinding; the juxtaposition of two film images at once gives the
spectator an unusual amount of freedom in what to concentrate on and
what to make of these variously whacked-out performers.'
Here is an extract.
