HEADLINES: A Modern Take on Warhol's Electric Newspaper
HEADLINES! A Modern Take on Warhol's Electric Newspaper
Hosted by Busboys and Poets 5th & K

Bringing the news headlines to life! ...through a multimedia experience of overlapping performance and visual art we explore the ironies and idiosyncrasies of the mainstream news narrative with a special focus on:

- TROY DAVIS
- DC & PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD
- OCCUPY WALL STREET

This multimedia event will draw on Andy Warhol's HEADLINES art (currently on view at the National Gallery of Art) to explore the manipulation of the mainstream media and the role of artistic interpretation. The event is centered around Warhol's "Electric Newspaper," an audio collage of news clips, live music and beat poetry that speaks to the irony behind the mainstream news narrative. With our reinterpretation of the "Electric Newspaper" we create a similar experience, bringing the news headlines to life with overlapping performance and visual art to explore the ironies and idiosyncrasies of the mainstream "news."
