Rencontre avec NICO et Andy WARHOL à New-York dans l'atelier underground de ce dernier, la Factory. Le maître du Pop Art se livre à une expérience de cinéma expérimental en filmant NICO qui répète inlassablement la même phrase en se servant de divers objets en guise de téléphone (brique de jus d'orange, pot de moutarde, boîte de conserve...). Brève interview d'Andy WARHOL et de son égérie.
"In 1985, Andy Warhol attended the Commodore Amiga product launch with Debbie Harry a.k.a. the queen of Videodrome a.k.a. the world's occasional greatest rapper. Once settled in, he proceeded to learn the heretofore undiscovered joys of the paint bucket tool. Andy grew to be quite the aficionado of the Amiga, so much so that he sat down for a 1986 interview with Amiga World magazine, who have yet to respond to my numerous requests for a subscription renewal."
Lou Reed (1978) Street Hassle. I’ve listened to this song so many times but I’d never seen this video. It shattered me. The video features an amazing cast from Andy Warhol’s The Factory, including footage from Nico and Dennis Hopper’s Screen Tests for Warhol, shot in the mid-1960s. The clip also features footage from Warhol’s film, Kiss (1963).

I'm dedicating this to the Great Artist, Fabric Lenny from Yorkshire UK, Directed by Keith Haring, staring Grace Jones, with Andy Warhol, Dr. Timothy Leery and a host of other beautiful people from the 80's. I spent 4 days and nights working on this video. Enjoy!
I Liked Everything I Saw on #Facebook for 2 Days. Here’s What It Did to Me. "...my feed was almost completely devoid of human content. I was only presented with the chance to like stories from various websites, and various other ads." --Mat Honan, Wired ♥ “I think everybody should like everybody.” --Andy Warhol #marketing #losinghumancontact
On a rainy day in New York, we visited iconic artist Ultra Violet (aka Isabelle Collin Dufresne) in her studio. Quickly integrated into pop and surrealist artists' social scene upon her immigration into the US from France, Ultra Violet is known not just for her work, but also her personality which influenced many fellow artists—perhaps most notably Andy Warhol. Her art reflects a contemporary aesthetic; utilizing neon lights, computers and mirrors.
Warhol's "13 Most Wanted Men" was insalled on April 15, 1964. But officials objected to the content and had the work painted over a few days later. Only a 20 by 20 foot silver square remained visible when the fair opened on April 22.
