This performance will be held in the the Carnegie Lecture Hall, a short crosstown drive from the Warhol Museum. The project, which features a selection of Warhol’s four-minute silent film portraits with commissioned soundtracks by Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips (formerly of Luna and Galaxie 500), was jointly commissioned by The Warhol and The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The concert, which features single-subject studies of Lou Reed, Nico, Dennis Hopper, and many other recognizable faces from the Warhol Factory, has been consistently touring internationally since January ’09, at venues including the Allen Room at Lincoln Center, the Los Angeles Film Festival, Wexner Center for the Arts, Sydney Opera House and Teatro Versace in Milan.
