16 Oct Velvet Underground’s Art Connections
If I ever needed an excuse to eat my words, and subscribe to Apple+ (er “banana+?”) – this will be worth it.
This documentary is about the ways the Velvet Underground looked at what was going on in the art world at the time and applied it to rock. This film considers what happens when music works a lot like art, when a rock performance works more like a happening.
“We are not part of the subculture—we are part of the culture!” Andy Warhol helped ensure that that was possible for the Velvet Underground.
