Warhol Film Screening: Chelsea Girls
Saturday 6 July 2013,
Soundings Theatre, Level 2
See Andy Warhol’s notorious film Chelsea Girls – a raw representation of his Factory ‘superstars’ and their lives at New York’s famously seedy Chelsea Hotel.
Chelsea Girls … made everyone sit up and notice what we were doing … sit up, stand up, and walk out. Until then, the general attitude toward what we did was that it was ‘artistic’ or ‘camp’ or ‘a put-on’ or just plain ‘boring’. But after Chelsea Girls, words like degenerate and disturbing and homosexual and druggy and nude and real started being applied to us regularly.
