VelvetUndergroundAndNicoPoster wikimedia commonsVisit the museum after hours for fun with vodka cocktails, curious gallery activities, and a talk about punk rock and pop art by special guest C. Ondine Chavoya!

Punk Rock & Pop Art: Explore the creative intersections between Andy Warhol and Punk. Chavoya maps out conceptual correspondences in the style and technique of Warhol’s art and films with Punk.  The talk will draw out connections from the Factory Superstars, the Velvet Underground, and Glam Rock to consider the emergence of Punk and considers Warhol’s critical play with notions of authenticity, originality, and commercialism.
