Sister Ray Slam with Secret Cinema
The Secret Cinema will help make the media more multi as all celebrate the close of ICA’s summer season with screenings of rare Andy Warhol short films and “Screen Tests,” accompanied by four live bands reinterpreting the Velvet Underground’s epic “Sister Ray.” Many of the films selected were originally part of Warhol’s “Exploding Plastic Inevitable” shows with the Velvet Underground. In conjunction with the exhibition That’s How We Escaped: Reflections on Warhol, come channel The Factory with music by U.S. Girls, Dry Feet, Megajam Booze Band, and The Sweet Sister Ray Band (featuring Dan Murphy of Megawords). Plus artisanal treats by Little Baby’s Ice Cream!
