Velvet Underground Extravaganza

Philharmonia once more features in the history of Velvet Underground, a rock band created by Lou Reed and John Cale.

From Wednesday 30 March to Sunday 21 August 2016

Cité de la musique - Philharmonie de Paris - Espace d'exposition - Philharmonie 1

Despite its short life span from 1965 to 1970, the Velvet Underground has made its mark in the history of music as never before. On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of their first album, an eponymous disc marked by Andy Warhol’s banana, Philharmonia will organize an exhibition devoted to the Lou Reed and John Cale band.

The exhibition will offer an opportunity for spectators to review the situation that led to the creation of Velvet Underground in America at the beginning of the 60s, at a time when it was oozing with creativity. In addition, it will highlight the role played by Andy Warhol in the group’s carrier. In fact, he is the person who took artists under his wings in 1995 with his famous Factory.

A forerunner par excellence, Velvet Underground emerged out of obscurity rather belatedly. However, it is still a source of inspiration for many modern artists such as Iggy Pop à The Kills.
