In New York: The Chelsea Girls Exploded


A new, digital scan of Andy Warhol’s two-screen 1966 masterpiece premieres this week at MoMA.

In addition, related films will play, including never-before-seen material that Warhol shot to create his epic vision of the New York underground scene.

The exhibition also features in-person appearances by Warhol stars; 10 film premieres, including The Trip, The John, Their Town (Toby Short), and The Pope Ondine Story; and two special 16mm screenings of The Chelsea Girls.
